As of yesterday, I’ve officially accomplished one full week of being exercise free.

Exercise Break [Whats Working & Whats Not]

Today’s post is just for fun! Clare did this cool ‘would you rather’ survey the other day and I thought I’d fill it out too! Good way to get to know me a little better!

Nutrition Tips to Embrace and Ignore

New week, new month! 

Thank you so much for all the amazingly sweet comments on my last post! My sister appreciated all the well wishes and is still riding the high from her marvelous wedding!

Today on the blog we’re talking nutrition. Let’s get into it….
