How to fight depression for work-from-home moms

It’s not unusual for any work-at-home mom to struggle with loneliness or even depression. I know I do from time to time. Before I move on, I want you to understand that if you are going through depression, you need to seek the help of a professional for that.  But this also applies to the common pangs of loneliness and sadness anyone of us may go through, like when we miss our friends or when we miss our youth. You know what I mean? But anyway, now that I’ve mentioned it, mine’s partly triggered by my biological clock (I’m almost 40, […]

Fun old school workout for Work-from-home moms

“Whatever works is worth doing”, that’s my new mantra when it comes to fitness.

My 21Days No Junk Food Challenge: Consistency

I’m blogging about my 21-Days No junk food challenge a little later than planned. I went into it back in April (?), see? I’m not even sure when I started.

I’ve been on a  lookout for a diet and workout program that’s doable, affordable and fits into our routine. Signing up with a personal trainer is ideal but right now, my best option is to find something that I can do […]

Godiva Natural Skin Care happy li’l consumer

I have a confession to make: I know nothing much about skin care products. I just wasn’t exposed to them, I guess? I didn’t experience a zit phase and having dark spots on my face (other than my freckles) and body wasn’t something I had to contend with until I got pregnant with our youngest son, Judah at the age of 35. I practically got away using whatever soap there was on the soap dish although I did try a couple of local moisturizers, a toner, and (beats me why!) that peeling liquid you put on your face?

Hip Hop Abs Momma

So, I woke up sore all over and all because yesterday, I braved my first HIP HOP ABS session. It’s not like I enrolled in a class or something. I think that’s what the DVDs are all about – to sell to desperately out-of-shape housewives so we can do the workouts at home. I’ve been asking around to borrow a copy and finally, I got a hold of it and got down to work…and work it out, I did! BOOM! Eating-disorder history Before this whole momma thing, I used to be…how should I put it? Uhm, I guess, a recovering […]
