Closing Out 2017 Monthly Challenge

  One of the greatest ways to keep going through the holidays is through mini goals.  I think the holidays and fitness seem like two subjects that get separated often.  They do not have to be though!  A little bit each day and mentally you know that you have held strong with putting in an […]

Fit Foodie: Crazy busy

New scheduling and the holidays have made my menu plans really…well…meh.  I am struggling to remember to defrost meat before heading out for the first half of the day and then when I get back, I’m realizing that I simply do not have enough time to make it work.  One of these days I will […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: 5 Year Runiversary
