How I Stopped Peeing My Pants While Running Postpartum

I had an embarrassing moment the other day, after a hard run, and I decided to share it on my Instagram stories because I knew there were probably many other moms experiencing the same thing. After running a few miles and doing some sprints at the end, I totally peed my pants. It wasn’t just a small leak, I full on, let it go experience, with no control. I realized how much work my core and pelvis really needed, despite all the time I’ve spent getting back in shape. I’ve talked about my Diastasis Recti and small umbilical hernia, and my plan to repair it without surgery. It was from my Insta strories that Amanda at Empower Your Pelvis reached out to me with her program.

How to Train for a 5K with A Stroller

I finally started consistently running again, after being pregnant or nursing for over 5 years. I had three babies in just over three years, and I am just finishing nursing my third baby now. It is really hard to get into a fitness routine once you have kids. I struggled the most after my first baby, and I really didn’t get back into a fitness routine much. With my second I was a little better, and now I am finally back to running again. I can actually say I’m a runner, and it makes me so happy! I run with my stroller, with two of my kids most the time (the hubby takes one), but sometimes I pile all three in, and rarely I go with one or by myself! If you follow me on Instagram, you will see all my running adventure stories. Sometimes it’s the baby and the…

12 Designer Diaper Bags for Under $100

As a mom of three, I’ve been through a few diaper bags. I have even completely boycotted diaper bags for a while because I just wanted to carry a purse. I decided not to pack all the stuff and try to be minimal. Well, all the “stuff” just wound up on the floor of the car and in the way back. I was digging around the car, rather than a diaper bag, which is just too much. We mamas need diaper bags, and we need all the goodies to keep our little ones happy. I still haven’t bit the bullet and purchased one over $100. Because of all the spills, messes, beach trips and parks, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. So, I’ve shopped lots of bags, and I thought some other mamas out there might appreciate a list of diaper bags that look designer with out the…
