What I wish people knew about celiac disease is ____.

What we want you to know about celiac disease

Since sharing my raw post about what it feels like to live with celiac disease, I’ve gotten hundreds of comments, emails, and DMs from the celiac community thanking me for putting some of what they feel into words. This year I wanted to share more of a community perspective, so I posted the following statement on my Facebook page and asked people to comment. “What I wish people knew about…

How to watch Saved by the Bell in Chronological Order

Have you ever tried to watch Saved by the Bell in the correct order? While you can get all of the episodes on Hulu, it’s pretty obvious once you start watching that time is jumping around and chronologically it doesn’t make much sense.  This was never something that bothered me as a kid because I watched whatever episode happened to be on after school, but these days, when you sit…

Dear Younger Me, Moisturize your neck

Dear Younger Me, Moisturize your neck.  Relax. 99% of what you’re worrying about will never happen. Wear sunscreen. Talk less, listen more.  5 weeks of unlimited tanning for $35 is NOT a good deal.

Our Baseball Life – FAQs

Life in pro baseball is hard to explain. Even when you’ve been around our family for years, it can be nearly impossible to grasp all the details and nuance of what we’re doing, why we live in multiple places every year, and how Jeff’s job works. Since opening day was yesterday, I thought it would be the perfect time to do an updated version of my FAQ posts. Here we…

My Diastasis Recti Journey

I started researching diastasis recti when my kids were little and my core was incredibly weak. At the time I just wanted to heal so I could get back to what I loved, teaching fitness classes and generally doing whatever kind of workout I wanted to. This was back in 2012, and diastasis recti wasn’t on center stage like it is today. I had to do quite a bit of…
