Hungry For Change

Good morning everyone!  I’m sorry but its been 4 days since my last blog.  This week just totally got away from me but the main reason was that I left my power cord for my laptop at home while I was at school.  I usually prep my blogs ahead of time while I’m relaxing at night so this didn’t happen!

Anyway, its been that kind

A Paleo Yogi

Good morning!  I may be a little peppy this morning from my AM Yoga I did.  I have been really tight and sore lately and I think I need to incorporate more yoga.  I’m a week early though because next week on the Health Holidays challenge is relaxation/stretch it out week (oooh sneak peak!). 

This is on top of my Yoga X workout last

Good Eats & Great Abs

Good morning!  So I don’t know what happened yesterday but I had loads of energy all day!  It was wonderful.  I never had the afternoon crash or anything.  I wasn’t even tired by the time 9 rolled around (bed time).  I even got up at 5:30 yesterday, no problems.  Can’t every day be like that??

Yesterday, I tried my hardest to stick to a mostly

I got some craft supplies for a project I am doing. Then I hit the workout section and found a Yoga DVD I have been wanting! I also found a DVD for only

DVD Review & Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Good morning!  First, let’s talk about my workout yesterday.  Strength training is super important and I have been a little slacking on it so instead of a run, I decided I would do a DVD.  I love Bob Harper’s Inside Out method series of DVDs.  These are not for the weak, they really kick my butt every time.  Bob’s Workout was no different!  I just
