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: 16/40

Note: McFatty Monday's is no longer! Instead I will post Momma's Monday Check-in. Join me as I eat and exercise my way through the next 24 weeks.

Due Date: April 8, 2011

Total weight gain: 6
Cravings: Hmm, Halloween candy!
Aversions: None.
Sleep: Sooo tired. I sleep on the couch in the loft now to avoid extra nightly disturbances since I'm still having a really hard time falling back to sleep if I wake up.
I can't live without: Our extra deep, super comfy sofa, three pillows, and my favorite quilt.
I miss: The satisfaction that comes from crossing items off my to-do list. I don't even make to-do lists anymore. That's just weird.
I am looking forward to: My second prenatal appointment is this Thursday. I'm ready for some face time with my midwife, and to hear the baby's heartbeat again.
Aha moment: Roscoe's spontaneous kisses are the best pick-me-up.
Best moment this week: I went to a baby shower over the weekend and it made me really excited to pull out all the new-baby gear that we have in storage, and to inventory Roscoe's layette. I have great memories washing and folding newborn clothes, and organizing them in the nursery.
Milestones: I think my feet are starting to swell already...what!? They've been really tight at the end of the day for the past two days. Nooo, it's way too early!!
Movement: The last few days I've felt more little bumps, but not as often as I'd like. They are definitely getting stronger though.
Gender: We find out in 16 days! The menu is set, and I've moved on to the decorations. I haven't thrown a party in a while, and even though this is going to be low-key, I have a few (probably considered dated) ideas that I've really been wanting to try. Tissue pom poms anyone?

Exercise: I ran 4 miles on Sunday, 3 miles on Friday, and boxed on Wednesday. I meant to run a five miler last night but it got dark before I got home so I rescheduled it for this Tuesday. I'm trying to coordinate my long runs with a girlfriend of mine, which is so much better than running alone.

Diet: With Halloween candy overflowing a bucket downstairs, and a few festivities centered around food, I'm all sugared out. The number on the scale's moving up too.

Goals for the upcoming week: Two days of running, two days of boxing, and ugh I need to figure out how to fit in two sessions of weightlifting (three would be better, but I know that won't happen).

Belly Shot:

Labor Signs: None


  1. Can't belive you are so close to half way through! I can't believe how fast is flying by (at least for me!) Looking forward to finding out if it is a little boy Sears or a littl girl Sears!

  2. Have fun at your prenatal appointment and hearing your baby's heart beat this week :) I can't wait for you to find out what you are having. A lot of my friends and family happen to be expecting around the same time as me and I get so excited to hear what each is having! Maybe it's because we aren't finding out and I'm sort of living vicariously through everyone else's excitement. If we were to find out, I would totally do a gender reveal party. Oh, and for the record, I love tissue pom poms!

  3. WHAT! You? NO "To-do-lists"? That IS weird! LOL

  4. ahhh you look so gorgeous & thin & lovely & perfect.

    Good job on the workouts!

  5. Our babies are so adorable! And I got such a good laugh looking back at Gunner screaming and Roscoe looking alarmed! LOL!
