Holidays with Kids
As we head into the holiday season, I’m reminding myself of how I felt over the summer. Although it isn’t nearly as long, I do want to enjoy the holidays as much as possible!

Mom of 4 Lessons
When my cousin Kamadchi said to me she wants to have 4 kids too, my immediate response: “because this all looks so good to you?!” She cutely giggles, “Yeahhh.. it looks like fun!” Which of course it is, everywhere we go (including staying at home) is a party – a loud, crazy, messy party. AndContinue reading “Mom of 4 Lessons”
Keeping Motivated After Day #1
The kids went back to school recently.

I remember 10 years ago when Leela was a few months old, Naren came home from work, observed us for a while and asked me, “Did you do anything for yourself today?” I didn’t really know, but the answer was no. I think back at that now, and I’m glad that I took thatContinue reading ““Did you do anything for yourself today?””
Post Holiday Reset
The holidays were fun… The kids brought home a bug on the last day of school that cascaded through our family (not the fun part.) So we spent Christmas at home, cuddled up in bed, taking turns caring for each other, and re-watching How I Met Your Mother.. but we were together. And isn’t thatContinue reading “Post Holiday Reset”
Happy New Year!!
Happy 2017, my dear friends and family!! The end of the year can be an extremely busy time, and our health and fitness tends to be put aside. I know I’ve missed workouts, eaten too much and feel like now is the time to catch up and make this year the best yet. Do you feel the same way? I want toContinue reading “Happy New Year!!”
