Yet again I had the best intentions to post last night but I ended up sputtering out around 8 p.m.  even though I ended up staying up too late anyway. Sometimes I just get into this mindless mode where I’m not doing much of anything even though I want to be. I did finally pick […]

Hey guys! I don’t really have a  plan for this post so I’m just going to start typing. That always helps me get over a case of “blogger’s block.” Monday’s post — a confession of sorts — really helped me get my act back together. I’ve been making much better food choices and I’m just really […]
