The end of one year and the beginning of another is also exciting to me. It’s exciting to look back over the last 365 days and look ahead at the next. In looking back over my blog, it’s crazy ridiculous to consider how its grown….and with it how I’ve grown, too. My ‘lil ole blog […]

But Your Honor, It’s just coffee. I always make a little extra coffee in the morning so I can pour up the leftover to save for later. While it’s still warm, I add sugar (I use Truvia-it’s made from natural stevia and has zero calories) to the hot liquid so it will melt better. Exhibit […]
I am a runner, personal trainer, coffee drinking, hot flashing 40 something year old. I blog about nutrition, health & fitness, recipes, quirky stories about my family and more. If you're interested, grab your own cup of coffee and stay a while, but consider yourself warned.
