Holiday Stress Relief
It's been awhile since I've blogged. My healthy lifestyle has been off and on, the weight has been yo-yo-ing, and my presence on SP has been hit and miss. I signed up for a half-marathon (walking it) 6 weeks ago and havent done much to prepare... Read more
This is NOT a Joke!
This is MY LIFE!

Faking It Until I MAKE IT!
UGH, I hate feeling the way I'm feeling! In the past decade I can point exactly to what threw me off track of my healthy journeys. There are two things. 1. A vacation OR 2. A non-structured time for my kids (summer break)
