Almost ran today, but decided to wash the cars and vacuum them instead. Talk about a win-win situation!
You either complain about it, or you play in it!
Had so much fun at Soldier Hollow tubing with my family this past week. It’s been a great time having family in town. Lots more fun in store as we don’t have to say goodbye for another week.

Mama Bird over here always feeding for two, and sometimes even three. Which is why I have been taking a prenatal vitamin constantly since December 2010 when I first found I was pregnant with Hudson. I continue to take a prenatal vitamin everyday for the year that I breastfeed my babies. This has always been a good thing because I always get pregnant within the first year of my babies life. So yes, sometimes I am feeding for three.
I am a strong believer in vitamins, not only for myself but also for the health of my growing babies. My motto has always been to make sure I am taking care of myself so that I am able to take care of others.
Whether I am creating life in my womb or feeding my newborn, my body has to be properly nourished at all times as it is in constant demand. I want nothing but the best for my babies, and since I am or have been their source of nutrients, I need to be constantly and properly fueling my body.
I am no longer pregnant and am now breastfeeding, I’ve been wanting to find a postnatal vitamin routine that provides essential vitamins and nutrients to both my baby and myself. I recently changed my routine and decided to give Vitamin Packs a try.
I have felt confident every step of the way in that my nutrient needs are being met. I’ve also loved the personalized experience and personalized daily/nightly pill pouch that have my name on it. I don’t feel like I am taking a chance and hoping for the best. I feel like I am getting the perfect amount of vitamins and exactly what I need as an individual.
At the beginning of my experience I took a survey, which asked all sorts of questions about me as a person, my lifestyle habits, dietary preferences and health conditions. From pregnancy and breastfeeding to aging, and even my fitness goals. I’ve taken confidence in knowing that I am getting the exact amount of nutrients for what’s right for me while being a valued Vitamin Packs customer.

With four back-to-back pregnancies, Momma Bird is feeling the need to get her life and body back.
I’m tuning into Z Living’s newest show, The Big Fat Truth every Sunday at 8pm ET along with my own personal goals and health.
Every Sunday different sets of contestants are trying to break their poor health habits. For instance, one week will show a group of moms trying to get healthier and show what habits are getting in their way and why they aren’t reaching their goals.
The Big Fat Truth finds the real reasons people are having weight loss struggles, and gives them hope along with the tools they need to use to transform their lives.
After each episode, I personally have felt more optimistic about getting my body and life back after recently having my fourth baby. I have felt spread thin having four very dependent children and looking for energy anywhere I can get it.
For me, both my weight gain and my weight loss is 90% on what I do & don’t consume, and 10% dependent on how much I exercise.
So what causes me to eat poorly?
I have narrowed it down to two things:
Sugar & Sleep.
Misery loves company. When I eat sugar my body wants more sugar. It’s a vicious cycle. When I don’t eat it, I don’t crave it.
Being a busy mom with children who still get up around the clock, sleep is a valuable thing; maybe the thing I value most these days and past couple of years. I have noticed that when I get adequate sleep I make healthier food decisions and vice versa.
I am not always the one dictating how much sleep I get, but I have made it a priority to make better eating choices no matter how many hours of z’s I get.
I want to ditch my quick solution of diet caffeinated soda, and find energy through exercise endorphins instead.
Tune in with me Sundays at 8pm ET and feel inspired to find out what’s holding you back in being your best self on The Big Fat Truth.

Celebrated Father’s Day a week late because our Papa Bird was under the weather the morning of the real Father’s Day.
Before he got sick he had asked for his special day for two things, that I go to church with him and to go on a family hike.
Both those things didn’t happen, we all slept in and then I took the kids to the park all afternoon so he could rest and not be bothered.
But, I am happy to report a week later, Daddy Dallin got his gifts. And both his requests were filled.
The hike was so beautiful walking along side the river, ending with a water fall and ice-cream. I think Father’s Day should be every Sunday 🙂
