Finding Balance

Now Accepting Guest Posts

As I prepare for maternity leave I am gathering up a bunch of great guest posts to keep The Balanced Life active and alive on the days I’m too tired from learning how to add a baby to this crazy life. If you have a topic or story that you think would fit The Balanced...

Body With Baby

After reading this post from Becca over at While You Were Napping I am smiling ear to ear. When I create programs, I create them out of passion. Passion that I desperately hope will translate via internet. I pour my heart into these new projects and then *hope* that the message is received and that...

Going Analog

I love The Tiny Twig blog and I love this post that she recently wrote about going analog on the weekends. I’ve been inspired (reminded) that I need more analog days in my life to get out, be present and live life the old-fashioned way. So today, I’m going analog. After all the work I...
How To Write A Health Vision

How To Write A Health Vision

Lately I’ve been thinking about all the visions we have for our individual lives. Sometimes they’re very clear, like owning a home, falling in love or having kids, and sometimes they’re more vague. We know we want something but haven’t actually put words or details to the notion yet. This came up for me when...

Free 21-Day Meditation Challenge

After a particularly stressful Monday, I’ve decided to join Oprah & Deepak Chopra’s free 21-Day Mediation Challenge. Life is a little stressful right now between just moved to a new state, re-building my local clientele, preparing for this baby to arrive in a few months and launching 2 online programs. And if there’s one thing...

Radio Show + A Reminder

Happy Friday Balanced Life’rs! 2 quick reminders before you head off into the weekend: 1. The last round of The Pilates Body Program before I take off on maternity leave is starting THIS Sunday! If you’ve been thinking about it or feeling the itch to clean up your diet and get toned for the summer...
Healthy Pregnancy Essentials

Healthy Pregnancy Essentials

At 6 months pregnant, I’m so thankful to say that I’m feeling great and loving this experience. I’m still working, exercising and going through my days feeling pretty darn energetic. I’ve recently been asked what kinds of things I’ve been doing to keep myself active without overdoing it (VERY important) and with a lot of...

Link Love: what I’ve been reading…

Happy Valentine’s Day¬†friends! I’m heading out the door to teach a Pilates class (one of my favorite classes of the week) but wanted to share a few links that I’ve been loving from around the web this week… I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Beverly Jacobs’ style blog as of late. She’s practical and to the point,...

My Personal To-Do List Strategy

Self-employment can be the best thing in the world, but it can also be an incredible challenge. I wake up each day and everything is up to me. Outside of my clients & classes, no one really cares what I do. No one asks me the status of my latest blog post, what I’m doing...

Technical Difficulties

Hi Balanced Life readers! I am SO sorry for the lack of blog posts lately. I’m having technical difficulties on the back-end and am working to get these squared away ASAP. I got one issue fixed, only to run into another one. In the meantime, I’m still posting tips and updates on Facebook & Twitter...
Merry Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve

Wishing ¬†you a very Merry Christmas! I know the holidays can be hard, sad, confusing, and difficult for some so I am sending my warmest wishes that you all would remember the true meaning of this holiday and the gift we have been given in Jesus. Today and tomorrow, let’s rest in the fact that...

She played a big role in helping me launch The Balanced Life and I have HER to thank for much of the success I’ve over the last year. Most notably, the courage to jump in with both feet and...
