Week 29 and Feelin' Fine!

Week 28 – Po-tEH-to, Po-tAH-to

Maybe you, my amazing community of friends and family, can help me out? The other day I tweeted this picture of one of…

Week 13 – Slow Down!!!

  Cravings this week: – bean salad (my stepmom, B’s, home made recipe)– cilantro – orange juice – cottage cheese – still on the mustard train   A client of ours recently described time as melting away, and I couldn’t agree more. I was 13 weeks on Monday this week, which means I’m entering into the…
