  Maybe you tinkle when you sneeze, or leak when you giggle. You know you should do something about it, but you’re not sure where to start. Did this post resonate with you? You are not alone! Urinary incontinence, while definitely not normal, is quite common and getting more and more prevalent. But don’t hide […]

A friend of mine shot me a text recently that said, Allergy season: always a good reminder to be consistent with pelvic floor work. You see, we live in Atlanta, where spring is stunning and life-affirming and extremely well-pollinated. Augusta, the home of the famed Masters golf tournament, is a few hours east of Atlanta. Whenever […]

When my middle child was younger, I used to call her midday sleeps “napples.” You know, a little nibble of a nap? (We clearly do not beget sleepers in this house.) As the summer comes to a close and I am full-time 100% mommy over the next few weeks, my time to blog will be […]

It’s baseball season and I’m a whiner. My son plays in the neighborhood league, where they warn you that failure to participate will mean you won’t be a part of the league next year. And participate?

This week’s art installment comes courtesy of my five-year old, M. These are my kind of snowflakes because I can enjoy without any of the side effects that cold weather brings. Surely I am not the only one feeling like she needs to unfurl her body after cold, icy, snowy, or illness-filled days? My friends in […]

For my second ferments of kombucha, I use containers I’ve accumulated over the years.  Mason jars, nut butter jars, and this bottle.  I got it in Florida at a fun smoothie stop on 30A, but every time I drink from it, I feel so illicit. #kombuchaflask If you read my blog much, you know I […]

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 […]

So the hot news this week is all about tinkling. Specifically, a video from Crossfit which characterizes the “common” act of peeing during a workout as something that is “normal,” and even the sacrifice one must make to be fit and competitive. If you are someone who cares about women’s health, as I am, this […]
