Congratulations! You’ve almost made it through Monday! I don’t know about you, but Mondays can be rough. I often play hard on the weekends and so I always feel tired on Mondays. However, I woke up this morning, got my workout in (it was triceps/chest day of LIIFT4), had some coffee, and thanks to a… Continue reading Meal prepping
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend! Ours was really busy, but good. We were supposed to do a bike ride on Saturday morning, but unfortunately, it was raining with forecasted thunderstorms, so we decided to skip. We ended up spending the day shopping and chilling out. I bought a couple of… Continue reading Week 4 of LIIFT4

Hey there! I hope your weekend is going great! It was 68 degrees yesterday in my neck of the woods, so you can betcha I was outdoors for a run!

I’ve been absent for a bit. I haven’t been inspired to write anything, and nothing exciting is going on. I don’t want to bore people with my normal routine of work, exercise, and what I’m eating. This morning, however, I saw this clip of Ricky Gervais on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and it… Continue reading I love food….and wine.
