Sorry it has been so long since I've blogged. I haven't been coming on Sparkpeople as much as I should because I've been so focused on my challenge groups on Facebook. I need to start using the calorie tracker again to help me keep track of my m... Read more

Exhaustion Run Amuck

Monday, December 01, 2014      3 comments

I'm sure you feel the same way I do today. Tired, exhausted, and a little heavier. The carbo overload from last week is definitely taking its toll on me today, my first day back to work. I feel like a slug. I can definitely feel the extra weig... Read more

So, as promised I am making some changes in my life. Today, I downgraded a few apps that were helping me run my Beachbody business, so I won't be paying for those services. I'm going to keep my Beachbody coach subscription so I can keep gettin... Read more

Today, I will make squash/quinoa soup. I've had to split the preparation over a day, which has worked out pretty well. Last night, I threw the acorn squash in the oven for an hour then waited for it to cool before peeling it and storing it in th... Read more
