Hello, hello! It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Not much has changed; still been practicing the social distancing and only going on essential errands. I will be going back into work a couple of days next week. I have a face shield and mask that I’ll be required to wear. It will be good… Continue reading A love list 5-24-20
Disclaimer: My husband and I have been lucky enough to continue to have jobs throughout this pandemic. I’ve been able to work remotely at home. Our kids are grown, so we don’t have the stress of balancing work and taking care of kids. It’s just the two of us and our two dogs. We have… Continue reading Returning back to “normal”

Sixteen days of totally ignoring my body and trying to power through what I thought could work for me if I just gave it more time. Sixteen days of feeling shaky and hangry. I followed the guidelines. My fasting… Continue reading Dear IF – FU.
Hello, everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and that your Monday has been painless so far. I had a great weekend filled with Netflix binge-watching. The hubby and I finished The Haunting of Hill House and Godless. I would highly recommend both shows! Also, I learned this weekend that a $13 glass of… Continue reading Lean & Strong Mid Phase 2 Update
Good morning! I woke up really early this morning and because it was still dark out, I thought it was still the middle of the night, but when I looked at my phone I saw that it was 6:30. Sadly, the days are getting shorter. I just wanted to check in and give an update… Continue reading Lean & Strong Phase 2, Day 5
Good morning! Is it cold in your neck of the woods? It feels like 25 degrees here. Yesterday I had to bring out the winter coat. Winter is coming, folks.

I feel like overall I live a pretty healthy… Continue reading Phase 1 of Lean & Strong – the end is near!
