The Little Tweaks Add Up

Even though I’m full-steam-ahead working on my 2015 goals, I can’t help but continue to be a bit reflective on 2014. Last year was such a tough year for me, and when I think about how I felt last January vs this year I can’t help but feel grateful.

Losing Weight In Three Easy Steps

2014 to 2015 20 Pounds Lost

In my 2014 year in review, I forgot to mention one thing. Last year, I accomplished my cliche goal to lose weight and ended the year almost 20 pounds lighter than I started it. I still have a small amount to lose before I reach my goal (whatever that may end up being), but this […]
