Hello and welcome!!
Just to tell you a little about myself – I’m a happily married, mom of three boys who are growing up way too fast. I live in every town suburbia and I’m not embarrassed to say I love it. I drive a smoking hot, scratched up minivan generally cluttered with coffee cups, granola bar wrappers and baseball bats. I think nothing says hot mama like a 40+ woman in smelly, old gym clothes, schlepping from the supermarket to the ball fields to the schools.
Wine with friends, a good book and of course ice cream, or some lower fat concoction pretending to be ice cream, makes even my toughest days sweeter. I exercise because of the wine and ice cream, and because my mom is hot. My favorite flavors are a mix of chocolate, cookies & cream and coffee chip. I strongly believe in multiple toppings.
Even though I would rather not bring it up, I have an emotionally and physically debilitated father that at times I write about (generally in venting and unflattering ways), so I thought I should mention. Lastly, my kids are my treasure and joy every morning and my pleasure to put to bed every night.
Also, I freelance around and have self published two women’s fiction novels on Amazon that are fun, mysterious and sexy. They are an escape that I had so much fun writing.
Thank you so much for reading and letting me share my schtuff (grandma word) with you. I really, really hope you enjoy.
And if you’re interested in hearing more about me, please check out my website alisaschindler.com or email me at email@example.com.
You’re the best!! Have the sweetest day!!
I heard you had a weird fetish for chipmunks with mustaches, so I’ve come to find photographic evidence. I suspect they’re hiding somewhere in your minivan.
In all honesty, this is one of the most refreshing ‘About’ pages I’ve ever read. Methinks you DO know what you’re doing, my friend.
oh the evidence is there, luckily, you will never be able to find it, the sour milk smell alone will defeat you. i challenge anyone to try.

“I think nothing says hot mama like a 40+ woman in smelly, old gym clothes covered in yogurt and booger, traipsing down the fancy aisles of the supermarket.” I could barely read this to my husband because I was giggling too much. Which is why I’m following your blog.
thank you! i so appreciate that. I’ll meetcha in the freezer section. 🙂

I loved reading your post about how you lost your period but managed to get it back through a healthy life of moderation. I am a 20 year old powerlifter, and am currently in the process of getting my period back. I lost my period once before due to not keeping a rich enough diet, but got it back within a year or so. I am now at a healthy weight, and try not to over train, so hopefully I will start menstruating again soon!
I was just wondering if you experienced any other long term health problems as a result of being amenorrheic for a couple of years. Although my strength levels feel fine, I try to take vitamin D3 just in case, as well as other supplements like omega 3. Was your bone density affected at all by the amenorrhea, or, because you still exercised, did your bones remain healthy?
And how “regular” are your menstruation cycles now? I know that I cannot expect my hormone levels to ever be “normal” again, but I was curious about how regularly you were able to restore your cycles.
Thanks so much! I greatly appreciate your open discussion about a topic like this.
Hi there, Angie. So happy my article helped you in any way. You know, every body is different and some more sensitive than others. I really struggled to get my body to work but for about a decade, it really didn’t. Luckily, I still managed (with assistance) have babies!! Strangely, after I finished nursing my youngest son, my period did return – at 39!! Very odd. But my story is not yours. The important thing is you recognizing unhealthy behavior and working to eat and exercise responsibly. Health really is everything. Oh, and my bone density is good!! No long term problems (besides fertility) – thank goodness!! Good luck to you!!
