A lot of you probably read this title and were like, “What the heck is intuitive eating?!” As you all know, I am quite the advocate for the IIFYM plan so in my opinion, intuitive eating goes hand and hand with this because constant weighing and tracking isn’t always realistic especially if you’re unlike me, and actually have a social life! (ha!)

Are you the type of person who has the dreadful scale sitting in their bathroom tempting you to step on to check your weight daily?

http://www.beastmodemomma.com/Well hello hello! I have been gone for quite some time but it feels good to finally be back and writing again.

Surviving The First Week With A Newborn

http://www.beastmodemomma.com/

So let me start off by saying, I’m no expert when it comes to babies nor have I previously had any experience with kids or babies prior to me having my own so this post is about how I handled my first week with my newborn baby girl.

It happens because of too much of a substance called bilirubin in the blood.

Tomorrow is my 40th week of pregnancy mark so we will see when she decides to come.
