So, a while ago, I decided, for whatever reason, to try and make my own Kombucha at home. For those of you who don't know, Kombucha is basically fermented tea, and it contains a lot of probiotics, so it is excellent for gut health. It is very lo... Read more

So, over the past couple months at Starbucks, I've gotten into the habit of drinking a lot of sugary drinks, as well as the leftovers of frappuccinos. I wasn't tracking the calories, but I'm sure it was a lot. Today, I drank what I felt like was... Read more

So, I'm starting nursing school in January (yippee!!) and my school offers lunch hour fitness classes. I want to take full advantage of these since I have to pay the gym membership fee anyway as part of my tuition; also, I have no classes from 1... Read more
