We had a nice little snow day yesterday filled with legos, book reading, and lots of kindle games. In the afternoon I packed orders and headed to the post office with a sick Miles while Eric took the other two to the dentist.

My part of the #PathToFit campaign with Garmin and Whole Foods is coming to an end this week. Each week they have given us topics to talk about and we get to “run” with them and make them ours. It’s been nice having someone give me a topic to think about rather than getting lost […]

Whole 30 1

I survived and THRIVED on Whole30 this past January. My weight stayed right around where I was in the fall but I lost over 4 1/2 inches. A solid inch from each thigh was the icing on the cake, that I won’t be eating This Whole30 challenge was very different for me than the last […]
