Bad Moms Adapt Their Fitness Routines To The Seasons

By on November 16, 2011

The Swiss Naturals folks have asked me to continue to write about how I continue to incorporate fitness and health into my life, and as the weather has now turned colder, it makes sense to talk to you guys about what my plans are now that the summer is but a distant memory. During the [...]

Bad Moms Tell The Truth About Their Eating Habits

By on October 12, 2011

The Swiss Naturals folks are still sponsoring me to talk about fitness and health. Yay! As you may remember from last month, I decided to get my eating habits back on track. How am I doing with that? Not bad, actually. I could be doing better, but sometimes you just need a glass of wine [...]

Bad Moms Get Their Eating Habits Back On Track

By on September 8, 2011
Garden Haul

steroids The Swiss Naturals folks still want to sponsor me to talk about fitness and health and if there's one thing that is going through my head on a constant basis, it's that. I've talked about it here before (like when I trained for a 10K)(and finished it!) and even have a category called Fitness [...]

Bad Moms Exercise During The Summer

By on August 12, 2011
My running trail

Full disclosure: The Swiss Naturals team supplied me with Glucosamine to battle my aching knee, as well as other vitamins and have asked me to write about health and wellness in return. I can totally do that. Summer is here and with it, the HEAT. It’s hard enough to haul my butt off of the [...]

Good Dad Tropes: Clean-Shaven Dads Are Good Dads

By on July 20, 2011

Look, I don’t have anything against beards, really. I know that I’ve spilled a few words here about not loving them, but I don’t, like, hate them. Some perfectly wonderful men have beards. Gandalf! Dumbledore! Santa! That said – and I’m really not trying to suggest a conspiracy or anything here – ever notice that [...]

Why The Father of My Children Will Never Have A Beard

By on July 15, 2011

My husband loves his facial hair. Really loves it. Like, he would totally wear a beard, always, because he thinks that it makes him look manly, and more mature, except that I don’t let him, because, beards, ugh. It’s not that have anything against beards qua beards, or facial hair in general. There are some [...]

Bad Mom Confessions: I Steal My Husband’s Razor

By on June 30, 2011

Oh, come on. You know that you do it, too. His is just so much better than yours. So, you know, you take it. I know that you do. I certainly do, and I’m not ashamed to say so. I don’t know why I think that his is better than mine. I’ve read that there’s [...]

Teenage Car Safety: Bad Moms Have A Few Ideas

Teenage Driver

Last week, I had the pleasure of heading to Dearborn, MI to check out some of the new trends that Ford is putting in them there motorcars. (I also got to drag race an F150, but that’s another story altogether). As a Mom, my interests in cars have naturally changed. No more are things like [...]

Bad Moms Take Their Vitamins

By on June 10, 2011

Remember when I told you guys that I had chatted with the Swiss Naturals team and that I was really excited about trying Glucosamine to battle my aching knees? And that as I trained for the 10K race I ran in this June, I found that it was working – that my knees (and hip) [...]

Bad Moms Love Living Visually Through Instagram

By on May 27, 2011

I take a lot of photos of my kids. A lot of photos of my kids. More than I know what to do with. More than I can fit on my blog or in a Twitter stream or on my Facebook page or even in a good old fashioned hold-in-your-hands photo album. My life is, [...]

7 Reasons Why Bad Moms Love Universal Studios

By on May 26, 2011

So, last week I packed up the family and we went to Orlando, Florida, where we did NOT go to Disney World (that was last month), but instead went to Universal Orlando Resort, which, truth be told, is not a place that I would have ever really thought of going, except for maybe to go [...]

New (Balance) Shoes

  Regular readers of my personal site know that I try to eat well and exercise about five times a week (sometimes, six). Heck, I even have a category called Fitness and Health. I’m currently in week five of a six-week diet and exercise program and on top of going to Boot Camp twice a [...]

My birthday is coming up next week. I tell you this, because you might want to get me something, and I think that it’s important that you know that I do not want flowers. And by ‘you’, I mean my husband, so, honey, if you’re reading this? PAY ATTENTION. Here’s what I want: power. I [...]

Bad Moms Have Joint Pain

By on April 28, 2011

Maybe you aren’t like me, or some of my fellow fitness friends, but every time I do a squat I think about Rice Krispies. Snap, crackle and pop! go my knees and I both smirk and wince at the same time. I’m quite happy that that particular expression has not been caught on camera. Yet. [...]

Stuff My Kids Wrecked

By on April 21, 2011

So for a tech-related topic this week I was going to write about my favorite software, because that’s what some of my buddies over at the Intel Canada Facebook page are talking about, and it’s kind of an interesting subject, inasmuch as I like hearing what other people use to make their work lives and [...]
