The 4 Hour Body, Slow Carb Diet: 12 lbs Gone, and 13 More to Go

After 4 ½ years, I can no longer blame my extra weight on pregnancy, I now have to own it as my own doing (not that pregnancy wasn’t my own doing but psychologically calling it “pregnancy weight” makes a difference). I have lost the motivation I had for weight lost when I was younger when […]

Needless to say I have my moments of […]

Physique 57 3-Disc Workout Series Volume 2

I’m not one to do an at-home workout. My wood floors aren’t meant for jumping, my TV is mounted fairly high since I live in a duplex with very high brick walls, and working out alone doesn’t come with the energy I feel when I’m in a studio where everyone is into the workout. Plus, […]
