A lifestyle change is about developing new habits.  In our case, our lifestyle [...]

Happy Sunday!  That means it's time for meal prepping in our house.  This week I've been feeling uninspired with the meals.  We didn't even make a grocery list when we headed to the store. It's my job to deal with the lunch and Willie deals with the dinner.  Collectively we do breakfast and we each [...]

I'm excited for a couple of things coming up, but for me to really enjoy those things I have to be healthy and strong.  I've got Marine Corps Marathon in October and I never thought I would have the chance to run that race so I want to make sure I make it through all [...]
