I didn't care about being healthy (gasp!)

 

Nope, not really.  Not until I had kids. I mean, sure–I worked out because I wanted my clothes to fit. I wasn't paying attention to what I was putting in my mouth, on my body or cleaning my house with. Becoming a mom made me want to be more informed. I started to pay attention to things I hadn’t before, like food labels and ingredient lists. I knew I needed to make changes, but where to start? I was completely overwhelmed.

I dove in anyway. I started by taking baby steps with simple swaps. It still amazes me how small changes, done consistently over time, make such BIG differences. I’ve learned a LOT over the past 14 years and want to help other moms that are on their own journey. 

I’m here. I see you. I hear you. I’ve been there and I want to help support you. Everyone is on their own journey. Being a mom is the best, most rewarding, yet the hardest role we’ve ever taken on. I’ve never felt more joy…or more isolated…than I have as a mom. I’m here, right alongside you, finding what works for my family, just doing the best I can, and encouraging you to do the same!

MINDFUL EATING 101: TRANSFORMING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD FOR A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE

Discover the transformative power of mindful eating to unlock a healthier, more fulfilling relationship with food. Mindful eating is not a diet but a consciousness that centers around the present moment, appreciating each bite's taste, texture, and nourishment. Mindful eating offers numerous benefits, including weight management, improved digestion, enhanced enjoyment of food, reduced stress and anxiety, and increased self-awareness and self-control. Overcoming obstacles, such as emotional eating, cravings, and social pressures, requires self-inquiry, acknowledgement of cravings, and communication with others. By making mindful eating a habit and incorporating it into your food preparation, on-the-go meals, and dining out, you can embrace a natural and intuitive way of consuming sustenance. Start your journey towards mindful eating today and savor the transformative effects it brings to your health and well-being.

What is MOPS?

If you're like me, you have maybe heard about "Mops" or seen it posted about but have no idea what the heck it is. Are we cleaning? Do I need a bucket? Seriously. I was so confused as to what MOPS stood for or what the heck it was. 

A friend of mine kept telling me that I should find a mops group in my area but in full disclosure, I was pretty sure that I didn't 'need' or want to be part of a "moms group". I was SURE that I knew what those were like and that I wanted no part of one. I had no idea how wrong I was.

I finally searched for and found a group near me. I joined their Facebook group but STILL didn't brave a meeting for another whole year! I told you...I was sure I knew what they were about. Ha. I also found out that it stood for Mothers of Preschoolers and all I thought was, “I don’t have a preschooler right now,” my son was older, my oldest daughter wasn't old enough yet and I was still pregnant with my youngest. Why the heck would I be interested? I finally decided to give it a shot and it turned out to be such a wonderful experience that I am going on my 6th year of joining MOPS + MOMSNext of Avon.

MOPS is a national organization where local community churches host their own meetings following the themes set by MOPS International. Each group has their own leadership and way of doing things but they are all tied together with the same principles. They often meet at a church but you do not have to be a member of that church to attend. My MOPS group has many moms that are do not belong to a church that join that do not attend church regularly. All moms are welcome regardless of where they are at in their faith. 

To really captivate what MOPS meetings do for moms, one mom decided to ask moms that were attending to get their own personal expression of  “What is MOPS to YOU?”

“A way to connect with other moms in my stage of life!” Rene Griffin

“MOPS has given me more confidence as a mother, and as a leader.” Katy Leach

“Mops is something God uses to encourage me in this mothering season!” Angelica Cobb

“A group of likeminded moms; it reminds me I am normal and not alone in this beautiful mess called motherhood!” Grace Young

“MOPS has given me the opportunity to watch over the most amazing little God’s children. As a kid care worker.” Cathy Doty

MOPS has given me lifelong friends, the opportunity to grow as a leader, and reminds me that I should give myself lots of grace during this season of mothering.” Brittany Jones

“I started going to mops to be able to see my friends more often, but I got so much more. The first year it was about survival, having a place where my kids would be cared for while I got time to be a person and not just a mom. I found the content to be inspiring and very helpful. One day in that first year I walked in feeling completely stressed and on the verge of tears, another mom gave me the best hug and told me it was ok. The second year, I was happy to return, got to be a table leader and made 4 new amazing friends. Now I’m in my third year, officially on the hospitality team and a table leader. I love mops, for the friendships I’ve made, but even more for allowing me to look inside and find a faith I get to explore and expand.”  Jayne Crosby

This last share was from her table leader last year, she was truly a blessing in her life as there were many times when she was going to not go to the meeting simply because she felt like she had to get so much done, groceries, laundry, business stuff and so forth. When she would reach out to her and mention that she may not be at the meeting this month, somehow she just knew that she had to be my encouragement to get there. When she made it, she felt so grateful for her motivation. 

I've been there many times! What mom can't relate to that?! 

Still not sure? Check out this video that our local MOPS mamas put together, sharing how MOPS has impacted their mothering, their relationships...their lives.

Is intermittent fasting for you?

Intermittent fasting has gained popularity in recent years due to its health benefits. It is an eating pattern that involves alternating cycles of fasting and eating. There are different types of intermittent fasting, but the most common one involves restricting food intake for a specific period, usually 16-24 hours. 

When I first experimented with intermittent fasting, I tried a 16:8 window. What that means is that I eat during an 8 hour window (10am to 6pm) and I fast, or abstain from eating for 16 hours (6pm- 10am).

Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

One of the key benefits of intermittent fasting is weight loss. When you fast, your body uses stored fat as an energy source, leading to a reduction in body fat. Intermittent fasting may also help improve insulin sensitivity, lower inflammation, and improve brain function. Here are some of the potential benefits of intermittent fasting:

1. Improved weight loss: Intermittent fasting can help reduce calorie intake and boost metabolism, which may lead to weight loss.

2. Reduced inflammation: Intermittent fasting can lower inflammation levels in the body, which may be linked to reduced risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease or diabetes.

3. Improved brain function: Some studies suggest that intermittent fasting can improve brain function and protect against age-related cognitive decline.

4. Lowered risk of certain diseases: Intermittent fasting has been linked to reduced risk of certain diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease.

5. Increased longevity: Studies show that intermittent fasting may extend lifespan by activating certain genes associated with longevity.


It is important to note that some intermittent fasting windows are not suitable for everyone, including pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with certain medical conditions, and those with a history of disordered eating. It is always best to consult with your trusted healthcare provider before starting any new diet or eating pattern.
