IknowI have mentioned this multiple times here on the blog, but yikes, my brain is FRIED. Between managing the schedule of my two kids, my husband, myself, our social lives, sports, work, etc… I feel like my brain has hit capacity 100 times over.

There are days where I’m just flat out sick of all the freaking technology that surrounds us. Like, WHY OH WHY does everything NEED TO BE CHARGED? It makes me crazy! And now that our kids have tablets and iPods and even these fitness tracker things now, I’m constantly charging something or being asked about charging something.

IF I DON’T WRITE EVERY DAMN THING DOWN I’m lost. My friends laugh at my crazy, color coded Google Calendar– but seriously people, there is no way in hell I will remember anything without it! And my bullet journal is my to-do list bible. Seriously, I need help! Luckily, I have found some great apps that have totally saved the mom brain fails for me, big time.
Losing weight is tough for many people, myself included. I had been a serial dieter since my early twenties, but my weight just seemed to increase year after year. Quitting a traditional diet completely stopped that for me — the weight was gone, and it stayed gone. So how did I do it? It may sound crazy, but a $5 hypnosis app completely changed the weight loss game for me.
