Grocery Shopping Online Rocks…


I spend FAR too much time in grocery stores. I could be picking up something I forgot, or something I ran out of, or just decided to make something I didn’t have the stuff for. Whatever the reason I usually spend 2-3 days a week heading to the grocery store, with a toddler in tow.…

The Key to Working out Regular = New Socks?


I am pretty embarrassed to admit the amount of times I haven’t worked out because my workout gear was in a pile of laundry. Good thing I don’t know the actual number so I CAN’T actually tell you. It might seem like dirty laundry has nothing to do with working out but it does… Oh…

Looking Good to Feel Good


I wrote this a little while ago and forgot to publish it. The message is still valid so I’m posting it now 🙂 Looking good almost always makes you feel better. I don’t mean in a superficial way, either. When I say “looking good” I don’t mean looking like a model, I mean looking YOUR best.…

Preparing to Get Back on Track

Why I Quit Drinking Shakeology… Then I Didn’t


I’ve been drinking Shakeology since September of last year. I’m also a Beachbody Coach which means I’m committed to getting healthy and fit while helping others do the same.

Easy, Crispy Honey Mustard Kale Chips Recipe


Most people turn up their noses at the idea of trying Kale for the first time. I did and I’m not really sure why. According to my two-year-old toddler it looks like broccoli so that doesn’t seem that bad (unless you hate broccoli). Here she is sampling the good pre-kale-chips: When I looked around for…
