The year was 2009. I turned 40 that January and my life
was a mess.
At work, there was a lot of turmoil between the church
and the school where I taught. The joy of teaching had
At home, it was even worse. My marriage was showing huge
cracks of irreparable damage. Getting on the other side of an
affair was tough work.
Is this what midlife was all about? Is this what I signed up for?
I was at rock bottom.
In 2009, I was a shell of my former younger self. My
confidence was shot. I didn’t know who I was or what I
As 41 rolled around, I discovered CrossFit, a form of functional fitness in a group setting.
I learned to move my body on purpose. I learned what it was like to be supported by likeminded people. I began to rediscover my confidence. I stood taller. And I found my voice again.
During the next 10 years, I experienced so many midlife transitions.
I quit my teaching job, got divorced, changed careers, bought a house and moved twice, started dating again, became an empty nester, and had a hysterectomy. (Hello menopause!)
That’s a whole lot of stressful life events.
But also over those 10 years, I learned. I grew as a woman, mom, friend, and athlete.
I learned to use food as fuel. I learned to use exercise for stress relief. I learned to use my voice.
And most importantly, I learned to trust myself again.
At age 49 and a week after my hysterectomy, I went back to school. I spent the rest of 2019 healing myself, studying to be a health coach, specializing in hormone health.
All this experience and knowledge needed a home. And I knew I needed to share what I learned with others.
So I took a leap of faith and started Hey Momma in the summer of 2019.
