Working out

So, time to be honest. I have not been going to the gym on a regular basis on my own. I’m still working out with our fabulous trainers, but I lost my motivation over the holidays and stopped going to the gym, or doing anything on my own, since December. I’ve noticed changes in that […]

Dinner prep

I am HORRIBLE at dinner times, I always have been. In our family, we don’t decide dinner till a couple hours before its time to cook. Then I have to go to the grocery store for the supplies, then cook. Because of this, we end up eating very badly, eating entirely too late in the […]
