Fit Foodie: Cleaning House

Time to clean house!  All of these odd ingredients need to be used!  It is driving me batty.  This past week I sat down and decided that enough was enough.  The refrigerator looked empty again which triggered the kids to ask repeatedly for everything that was not in the refrigerator. (I know you know exactly […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Inspiration (Beware of rant)

I have found it.  It was lost in some mud and sand beneath a rock pressed deep within a trail.  My inspiration.  My love.  My breath. For some time now, I have not been able to truly find why I run.  Why do I love doing this?  It hurts.  It sucks.  Here I am killing […]
