It’s time for a giveaway!

I haven’t done a giveaway in quite a while, so I decided today that I would have one! And with it being November, and so close to Thanksgiving, and all those warm, gooey, happy feelings…well, why just stop at one? This first giveaway I am […]

Roasted Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Roasted Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Ahhh, don’t you just love fall? I like it when the sun is warm but there is a crisp breeze, perfect weather for cozy sweaters, skinny jeans, cute boots…or hoodies and yoga pants. Depends on the day. I enjoy making soups in the fall. It’s […]

Focus T25 Results!

Focus T25 Results!

First off, I need to be honest about some things. I completed this program, but I wasn’t always excited about it. I LOVED that it was an intense workout that only took 25 minutes per day, but sometimes I just didn’t want to do it. […]

Paleo Diet, Day 8

Paleo Diet, Day 8

Paleo Diet, Day 4

Paleo Diet, Day 3

Paleo Diet, Day 3

Woohoo, no headache today!! Today was definitely way easier than the first two days, which I attribute to my body getting over the “sugar flu” and not thinking that it needs so many carbs all day. So here is my day: *Energy & Endurance, Focus […]

Paleo Diet, Day 2 Done

Paleo Diet, Day 2 Done

Today wasn’t so easy. I got pretty overwhelmed at work with so many things going on, and I REALLY wanted a snack. Chocolate, candy, anything bad. But there was nothing. :-/ This may be the only time I’ve ever been thankful that we don’t have […]
