Maybe you’ve seen people posting on Facebook about their “PRs,” or Personal Records, in running or weightlifting. Running your best race or lifting a goal weight is exciting and gratifying. Nothing I say today is meant to diminish the value of setting a goal and accomplishing it. I just want to share with you a […]

Critical thought. It’s probably the unifying theme to this blog. I apply it to the subjects that interest me the most: nutrition, wellness, emotional well-being, parenting, birth and pregnancy, breastfeeding, movement, relationships, the media’s perspectives on women and mothering … and more.

Remember that time I stalked Katy Bowman at the Ancestral Health Symposium 2013? Because she was in Atlanta?  And this happened? Katy is my movement guru.  Her approach is firmly grounded in science, and yet refreshingly free from the burdens that often make science … how to say it? …. a tad unwieldy? Namely, she […]

My five-year-old daughter is taking dance this year. She takes thirty minutes of ballet and thirty minutes of “theater jazz” one day a week. She’s in class with four of her besties, and she is as happy as a clam about it all.  As for me, I am glad that while she takes a full hour […]

Yesterday I offered up quotable quotes and info from some of the sessions I attended at the 2013 Ancestral Health Symposium.  Today, I finish off with more notes from the conference.
