The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Swim!

I attended my first prenatal swim class tonight. It was surprisingly relaxing and enjoyable! I was a little worried that it would be geared toward “non exercisers” and filled with women interested only in doggy paddling around the shallow end. In truth, it was a low-key workout, but a seriously nice change from my usual high intensity, high impact, land routines. It felt great to glide through the water and take the pressure off what I’m now calling my “shrek feet”.

When I originally signed up there was not one other person registered for the class. On May 1st, I was told there were two, including me. So I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived and there were 6 other pregnant ladies—we started chatting immediately. Most women are due in August—I am by far the most pregnant, and apparently the boldest as I donned last years bikini. I felt a little weird at first, but it all worked out fine! Four of us are having boys, 2 are having girls, and one is pregnant with twins!

One woman looked familiar and after a short conversation we remembered a particular day, when upon my arrival to the Pentagon slug line, she had cheerfully greeted me with, “Oh! Another pregnant slugger!”. Funny how interconnected the DC/Northern VA area really is.

The class starts at 7:20pm, lasts 45 minutes, and will take place twice a week for the rest of the month. I reek of chlorine and my eyes are burning, but my feet experienced some relief and Baby Sears seemed to enjoy the routine, so I’ll look forward to next Tuesday.

As for tomorrow, it’s back to kickboxing.
