The Hormone Thunderdome

Its been six months since I began this journey, and I would like to say to you that I've been rocking it out, eating nothing but peas, brown rice, and nutritional yeast.

I would love to tell you I'm hammering out crow poses and meditating for an hour every day surrounded by Himalayan salt lamps and singing bowls, but that's not the case.

For now I've found my balance.


I became a parent twice in the span of 19 months to two vivacious little girls.  In that time, I systematically had to let go of the perfectionism (thanks, breastfeeding, for knocking me down a few pegs), cope with the drain on my energy level from constantly reminding a smaller version of myself how to use a toilet, and get over myself when it came time to accept help.
