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!

Momma's Monday Check-in: 9/40

Note: McFatty Mondays is no longer!! Instead, I will be posting Momma's Monday Check-in. Join me as I eat and exercise my way through the next 31 weeks.

Due Date: April 8, 2011

Total weight gain: 1
Morning Sickness: I had some of my worst days this past week. I'm hoping this means that it's peaking and going to go away soon!
Cravings: I love you cheddar cheese. and tomato sauce.
Sleep: Horrible, horrible, horrible! Even the littlest disturbance wakes me up and it's been impossible to get back to sleep.
I can't live without: Bump It Up. A (mostly) practical, fun to read guide to pregnancy fashion. The easy to follow guidelines developed for each trimester have been really helpful so far.
I miss: My former, less moody self
I am looking forward to: Nausea, nausea, go away!
Aha Moment: I should embrace maternity clothes and make the investment because I'm going to be spending much of the next 7 or 8 years either pregnant or postpartum.
Milestones: Belly sleep is getting a little uncomfortable!
Best moment this week: I went on a shopping spree at Gap Maternity and bought a mini wardrobe of maternity basics to get me through the fall and winter. I bought almost no maternity clothes last pregnancy so I'm excited to have cute, comfy stuff to wear this time. (Last time I made due with the Bella Band and a "uniform" of slacks, heels (I know!), stretchy tees, and suit jackets. It was great for the office, but not ideal otherwise.)

Exercise: Week 2 of "too ill to make an effort" COMPLETE!! I did go to kickboxing one evening, and twice ran 3 miles, but otherwise nothing!

Diet: The past two weeks have been ones of survival. I'm not keeping track of what I eat because it would probably stress me out. Eating every 30 minutes adds up at the end of the day.

Goal's for the upcoming week: Continue to take advantage of the mornings when I typically feel good and continue to try not to eat the whole house.

Belly Shot:

Movement: none
Gender: unknown

Labor Signs: none


  1. You still look wonderful, but I can start to see the bump!!

  2. EEK! :) Thanks, it's so early in the pregnancy it seems crazy, but I think you're right!

  3. Um, I would not consider doing hard cardio three times in one week WHILE DEALING WITH MORNING SICKNESS to be no effort. That's pretty darn fabulous. Give yourself some props, mama.

  4. Ok I just love your blog, I just stumbled onto it from thebump. Love the momma monday, I just made my first pregnancy post and may have to follow along with yours each week! We are due really close and have little ones close in age also :)
