Oh, time change, how I dislike you very, very, very much. (Hate is a strong word.) Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this doesn’t apply to you as much. But I think the suggestions I am going to make are great whenever you cross time zones. One of my family members once asked […]

The Monthly Challenge asks readers to think about the things they don’t have time for (a fitness class, shopping for fresh veggies instead of eating/serving frozen meals, cooking at home regularly, going for nightly walks after dinner, getting up in the morning for […]


September Monthly Challenge

Planning for my week

I work hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It’s a choice I have to face every single day. And part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is planning. Planning is a big part of my success with clean living. (I plan out meals and my exercise.) Sunday mornings are my normal day to hit the grocery. […]
