Five Things Friday

Good Morning!

I say this every single Friday- but this week was killer and I’m running on fumes. Today I have a huge presentation to give in the morning and lots of work to finish up in the afternoon. After that, I hope to fit in a good workout to let my week go and relax tonight! Happy Friday!!!

When I read this post by health coach Jamie Mendell last week, it really hit home. I was the exact same way when I worked with her last Fall, and since I’ve stopped working with her one that resonated was the idea of self-care. This time around when I’m losing weight, this has been one […]
