Do you ever get frustrated with all the fake reels on Instagram? Yeah, me too! Here at The Peachy Life Podcast, I'm dedicated to bring you real life and not just the perfect moments you see on social media. Here we will discuss self-love, motherhood, marriage, mental health, PCOS, weight loss, weight gain, careers, friendships and all the moments in between. I've never been a gal that feels totally comfortable in my own skin. It's been quite the journey of finding myself and loving who I am. I want to share all the ups and downs of real life and real struggle. Additionally, I want to encourage each of you to follow your dreams. A few years ago I was able to leave my teaching job of 10 years to become a full time food blogger. I built Healthy Little Peach, a health and recipe blog that has grown bigger than I could have ever imagined. Through hard work and dedication I was able to turn my passion into a full time career. The truth is, if I would have stuck in my "comfort zone" I would have never found my true potential and purpose. Not only was I able to leave my job, but my husband was able to leave his full-time job in healthcare to join my business two years later. Hard work and dedication can take you wonderful places if you believe in yourself and push the boundaries.

In episode 07: Parenting is Hard, PERIOD! my husband, Joel, is the special guest this week and we dive deep into all things parenting. The ups and downs, highs and lows. All of it! Parenting is hard and fun all at the same time. However, sometimes social media can blur our vision and tarnish how we see ourselves as parents. For example, when we see an influencer or blogger post their kids online, we begin to go down the dark comparison hole. I'm guilty of this too and have found myself doing it multiple times. I will watch other moms do perfect crafts with their children and automatically feel mom guilt and shame come to the surface because I'm not doing the same.Comparison is truly a thief of joy and we need to step back and stop comparing ourselves so much with everyone else. Social media has all the beautiful highlight reels of people's lives, including mine and it's not a place we should compare. It's not accurate because it doesn't show the truly hard parts of being a parent. Parenting is hard!Resources:Website my Cookbook the show (

In this episode, The Perfect Storm, I discuss some of the hardest struggles I've faced to date. This included, PCOS, infertility and disordered eating, which all seemed to hit me all at once. Once my body and mind had enough, this led to the perfect storm and me sinking and hitting rock bottom.I wanted to escape the prison of my mind and body but I felt hopeless, numb and alone. There was this darkness within me that I couldn't break free. I called this darkness my storm cloud. This cloud shows up a lot throughout my life and just when I think sunshine is peeking through a thunderstorm rolls in. In this episode, I get raw and emotional about how I lost myself and worked hard to become whole again. Through hard work I hit a point of happiness and wholeness. Just when I thought the sun was out for good, something happened and that dark storm cloud made it's oh so familiar presence. Resources:Website my Cookbook the show (
When you were a kid or teenager did you have a hard time fitting in? Were you searching for love and attention without ever finding it? Were you pushed to the side? Did you feel lost and unheard? Me too!In episode 02, I really dive into my childhood/teenage struggles. I remember hearing society telling me to be myself, but once I was, they told me to be something different. I learned real quick that people only “love” you if your exterior looked a certain way. In my mind, I was convinced that in order to even be considered a good person or worthy of love, I had to be skinny with long hair and cute clothes. The exhausting feeling of being "good enough" was one that lingered in my mind most of my life. Do you know the feeling I'm talking about? The one that makes you itch because you hate the skin you're in? I get it. I not only have felt it, but I still have days where those dark feelings creep back into my mind.Will society accept me today?Am I pretty enough today?Will they notice and love me today?The purpose of this episode is to make you feel a little less alone and like you’ve been heard. I’m also excited for you all to learn more about me on a human level. We ALL struggle or have struggled and it’s so healing to be able to share. Hopefully we can all learn to love each other without judging the exterior first. Resources:Website my Cookbook the show (
