      Moms, do you have an identity outside of being a mom? For the last eleven years now all I’ve known how to do is be a mother. I get up I go and I do because I’m a mom but lately I’ve began to question who I am as a person. I’ve noticed that a lot of time I use my children as a crutch and I hate it.

    My Trip to the Vitamin Store….

     It’s day 10 of our 365 day journey Qweens! As you all may or may not know I’m a mother of 3.

For the last few years I’ve been saying I want to live a healthier life but I never put my money where my mouth is. But now I’ve decided in the mentality of just feeling better doing better and being better not only for my kids but for myself I’m going  to start taking small steps to increasing my health and happiness. So today I got up…
