I’m NOT Perfect…I’m Just ME.

  Hi Friends. It’s time to get real for a moment. I often post about my progress and successes, but today I want to get vulnerable in the midst of feeling like a hot mess.

The Final Straw to Change

What is the final straw for change for YOU? I know for me, it’s feeling like crap.

What Does the Vital Mama Eat?

Well folks, let’s start with saying I’m far from perfect!  I personally live by the 80/20 rule. Let me point out that not everyone can live by this rule, and I still teeter on the ‘not being able to be moderate’ scale.  For some people, it’s easiest to give something up- completely. For others, moderation… Continue reading What Does the Vital Mama Eat?
