Well, my journey to good health during perimenopause took a crazy twist a couple of weeks ago. If you keep up with the blog, you may have noticed that I’ve been absent – more absent than any of you will ever know. Two weeks ago I almost lost my life due to blood clots (pulmonary […]
Making Goals are Important for Happiness
Happy New Year! Heidi here. It’s good to be back. Eric and I decided to do something we’ve never done before—spend the holidays on vacation. And in order to really be on vacation, we booked a trip to Costa Rica. It was a Christmas gift to ourselves and our boys. So we packed our bags […]
The Crazy History of Menopuase
Hi there, Steph here~ Every year during the holidays I do two things: 1) Go to as many movies as possible. 2) Read as many books as possible. The kids are out of school for two weeks, so I’m not running around like a mad woman in a mini-van. And, most of my clients jet off […]
Happy New Year! Set Some Goals!
During this holiday season, Heidi and I hope you are enjoying time with family and good friends. We also hope you are surviving those hormone altering temptations – sugar, excessive carb intake, staying up all night, stress and more stress. Maybe some of you are using some of Heidi’s great tips that she posted last […]

Depression and Menopause – Part 1
Depression and menopause. Two words that we have not strung together in one sentence since we launched this blog, but words that are often used in conjunction with just the thought of menopause. It’s reality—unpredictable hormone fluctuations plus stress, body image, sexuality, infertility, or aging—any one or a combination of these causes emotional distress that […]
Progress. Sexy Ankles!
It’s been a while, so I thought I’d update everyone on my progress related to getting healthy. I was suppose to have my appointment with my healthcare provider this week to get my blood drawn, check blood pressure and discuss further hormone treatment – i.e. my four-month check-up. But, of course, I caught the flu […]
Happy Hormonal Holiday Season!
First – Happy Halloween! And, happy kick-off to Holiday Food Challenges! If you are like me, you have staved off the desire to eat all of the Halloween candy and didn’t have to run to the store and get more for tonight. Of course, I was able to do that because I only bought candy […]
Fighting the Good Fight
This fine Saturday night I find myself enjoying the newest Bill Bryson book (One Summer: America, 1927) and bubbling in a nice, hot, cortisol lowering bath and I’m reflecting on the fact that it’s been almost two months since I received my” insulin resistance” diagnosis. And, I’d be lying if I reported that it has been […]
Take a Stress Break
I needed a stress break. Took a vacation from it all and went to Orcas Island! Since its been so flipping hot here in California Eric and I decided to find some Fall. And we found it for one brief week. Cool nights. Red and yellow leaves. It felt so great to wear jeans, a […]
