1,000 Squats/Day? Say What?

When I was first making up my list of 31 Goals, I initially made some goals that either weren’t focused enough on healthy living or I thought there might be a better goal I could strive for instead (my husband particularly didn’t like my idea of taking more couples photos for some reason).  So when […]

The Weight of It

Remember how I said that this wasn’t a weight loss blog?  That’s because I created this site to be a home of all things healthy-living; I want to focus on being more active, improving my diet, and enhancing my life overall.  But I can’t ignore that part of healthy-living is maintaining a healthy weight.

Birthday Reflections

I’m overweight. I’ve tried keeping track of my food; that lasted about 3 months. I’ve tried dieting specifically enjoying (yes, enjoying) the 17 Day Diet, but that lasted only 6 months, both times; other diets I tried lasted far less than that. I’ve tried exercise regimens, and they typically go for 2 to 4 weeks […]
