The “Momover” … About Face

May 25, 2010

A recent post on Aiming Low caused me to stop and thing about by beauty regimen.  Or lack thereof. Don’t get me wrong- looking good is important to me (obviously- note my obsessions with exercise, online shopping, and my hair).  Despite all this effort, I seem to be neglecting one key element.  My face. ...

The “Momover”… It’s Like 12 Step- Let’s Get Physical

May 5, 2010

Spin yoga spin yoga run yoga run run yoga run yoga spin… With all of this, how can I possible fine the time or energy to shave my legs? For reals, though.  Getting up at 5:30 every day and hitting the gym/trail/yoga studio may sound like torture, but it’s what keeps me going.  I...

The “Momover”… It’s Like 12 Step, Part 2

April 30, 2010

So, as I was saying, I seriously needed some therapy.  I have been in therapy before, during a completely different time in my life.  I really gained from it then and was looking forward to “the work.”  I found a great, female MFT who was recommended by one of my Yahoo mommy groups.  I...

The “Momover”… It’s Like 12 Step

April 26, 2010

Okay, maybe not exactly like 12 Step, because I sure as hell am not going to apologize for anything I went through in having and raising this kid, but it’s definitely a process.  One that begins with acknowledgement- recognizing the need for self-intervention, and being able to act on it.  This is hard to...

The “Momover” … Dressed For Spring

The “Momover” … Dressed For Spring

Once again, I have eaten my words.  Los Angeles received a good rain on Monday, after I declared (with certainty) that we wouldn’t see any more until October.  But, the skies are blue today, and the SoCal forecast is filled with sunshine.  Spring is finally here, and I’d love to honor it with a...

The “Momover” …Secret Fit Belly for Everyone!

April 5, 2010

I have an addiction to purging.  Stuff, that is.  I have this fantasy that we can live in a simple, sophisticated, uncluttered home. No matter how much stuff I try to get rid of, our clutter level keeps rising.  I have a  growing pile in the garage called the give away pile that will...

The “Momover” … Finding Time For Exercise

March 13, 2010

A big component of my post-kid Momover is exercise.  In fact, it is the top priority and the first thing I poured myself into after the birth of my son.  I was intensely devoted before I got pregnant, waking before the birds to get in a run or spin class before work.  That hour...

Spring Is Upon Us!

February 20, 2010
Spring Is Upon Us!

After two weeks of torrential rains and flooding, Angelinos are basking in the SoCal sun.  Yesterday’s high was 78°, the skies are blue, and the mockingbirds are chirping (more like screeching when it’s 4 am).  Spring is upon us!  Which means it’s time to take the woolens to the dry cleaners and pull out...

The “Momover”… New Shoes

The “Momover”… New Shoes

An recent examination of my footwear revealed several things. One, more than 50% of my shoes were not wearable because they they had a 3 inch heel or, no matter how many Foot Petals or extra buckle holes I added, they still didn’t fit (that leads to another story in itself). Two, most of...

The “Momover”… New Jeans, Pt. 2

… My first shipment of online-jeans contained 11 pairs.  I sent them all back.  I ordered 9 more.  I kept 1 (woo hoo!).  I ordered more.  You get the idea.  Here are some of the jeans that worked for me- while they aren’t a perfect fit, I am happier with my jeans collection than...

The “Momover”… New Jeans, Pt. 1

February 9, 2010

Shopping for jeans can be downright painful.  I can make this bold statement because I am so experienced.  I used to shop for jeans once a week, and this is no exaggeration. Jeans are a must-have, and yet they are the most difficult thing to buy.  Let me re-phrase that.  I have no problem...

Mommy and Me Haircuts

February 1, 2010
Mommy and Me Haircuts

My hair stylist, Helen, is very involved with my ongoing hair saga.  Prior to finding her, I had 10+ years of bad hair.  Too long, too short, too manly, too boring, too I-cut-my-own-hair looking.  Nobody understood my hair.  And then there was Helen.  It was love at first cut. I had several years of...

Learning To Love Yoga

January 30, 2010

I am a runner and have been for years. Not to say that I am very good at it, but I love it. I love the sweat and how it provides me with valuable alone-time to think. I love the aching fatigue I experience after a long run. Running keeps me trim. It keeps...
