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.

    Episode 10: The Importance of Setting Boundaries

    Episode 10: The Importance of Setting Boundaries

    In this episode, we dive deep into personal boundaries and why they are vital in order for us to thrive and be in healthy relationships. Having them in place allows us to communicate our needs and desires clearly without fear of repercussions. It is also used to set limits so that others don’t take advantage of us or are allowed to hurt us. It is a way for us to practice self-care and self-respect.
    Additionally, we discuss the difference between expectations vs. boundaries. Expectations are assumptions we have for others that seem to always let us down. Instead of building expectations and assumptions, it's much healthier to build boundaries and rules for what we will tolerate and what we want. 
    Live your life and stop trying to people please. You will never find happiness if you are always worried about what others think of you and your decisions. Live for what YOU WANT!

    Episode 07: Parenting is Hard, PERIOD!

    Episode 07: Parenting is Hard, PERIOD!

    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!

Real Talk

You laugh, you cry and you celebrate with Mac. I feel as though she and Joel are speaking directly to me. Although I do not have PCOS, I have struggled with my weight since childhood. Ups & downs; it isn’t easy. Worth the listen!!!

Real Honest Conversations

Absolutely love Mac and how she doesn’t beat around the bush about the realities of PCOS, being a parent, and trying to live a fulfilling life. Her conversation on these topics has reminded me to pause when I’m experiencing negative self talk and lean on my family and God when times are difficult. You have to give her podcast a listen!

Love Love Love

I have been a yo-yo dieter my whole life, I am 34 and feel connected to you on so many levels. I have done so many Whole30s love them but the guilt of not being able to read all the labels is so real! I am so motivated to get back to my healthy self! I haven’t truly felt healthy since 2013 and it needs to stop here. I love your podcast!!!
