Happy February ~ Letter From The Editor

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

The shortest month of the year is here. Anyone else ever feel like this is the longest month of the year? February always seems to drag on...and on...and on. I'm sort of dreading February for one reason: the weather. We've had a mild winter so far, and my biggest fear is that we'll get a ton of snow dumped on us this month, and cold temperatures to accompany the snow.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the month goes by quickly and uneventfully.

So, let's get to it. I keep a running list of blog post ideas and have lots to choose from this month. February is Heart Health Month, and I'll be sharing what healthy means to me and how I achieve it. At the beginning of the year, I decided to make January my "try anything at the gym" month. I took several classes that I've been wanting to take but have been making lame excuses not to. I am happy to report that I went to the gym 16 days in January. That's a personal record, and I'm hoping to beat it this month.

In light of my rediscovery of my love for fitness and feeling great, I'll be sharing fitness content this month including what to wear, what classes I love (and strongly dislike), how to get (and stay) motivated, and tips for get the most of your Fitbit or whatever fitness tracker you use.

If there is anything specific you'd like to see featured on the blog, drop me a line at piecesofamom@gmail.com.

In the meantime, don't miss these popular stories from January.


Last month I introduced a new series, "Weekend Dispatch" where I give you a glimpse into how I plan to spend my weekend. My inaugural post was a big hit. You can check it out HERE.

I generally don't do a Valentine's Day gift guide, but this year I decided to focus on gifts for the special guys in our lives

If you are a fan of Netflix and are looking for some new material to watch, here are the six shows I recommend watching NOW.

I'm always looking for ways to "green" up my act. I shared a few of my favorite products for eco-conscious moms and women.

Each year we buy countless products. From items that are new to the market to items that are old favorites we use time and time again, we make plenty of purchases. I am certainly no exception, but here were my favorite purchases of 2016.
