What are you drinking tonight?

I’m having my favorite. This is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and full disclosure, it’s the same bottle that I’ve had open for about the last four nights. I have my little, tiny glass every evening.

You’ve got some alone time right now. That must be very rare these days.

Iris goes to bed at seven o’clock, pretty much like clockwork. She has a very strong internal clock it seems, and then I get to have my evenings. I usually pop some popcorn, watch some Bravo and just chill out.

What has it been like for you to adjust to this new chapter of your life being a mother?

It’s a huge adjustment and honestly, I can’t remember what life was like without her. It’s the greatest love and it’s overwhelming. It’s all consuming. All I can think about is how much I love this little, tiny human. Physically, it has been challenging for me. I had a rough recovery. I had a really hard time healing and spent four or five weeks thinking, “Well, this is just how you feel, I guess.” Finally, I went back to the doctor and my doctor said, “Yeah, you’re not quite healing right.” So, thank goodness I went back. I think if it hadn’t been COVID, I probably would’ve gone right back to the doctor. I was afraid to go anywhere at that point because we were at the height of things with no vaccines yet.
That was tough. I couldn’t exercise and it took me longer to get back to that point. Exercise had always been such a huge part of who I am. I loved my workout routine, so I was missing that and missing that connection to my body. I was just grabbing whatever I could eat and not carving out any time to cook anything healthy.
In November I started doing WW, and that just helped me remember how to eat again. It helped me think about finding those fruits and vegetables and nourishing my body. In January I became one of their ambassadors. It was awesome to do something and love it, and then start working with them. I got back into my workout routine. It’s about finding those little pockets of time to do it.
