1. Campfires. Can you really call them campfires when you aren't camping? Homefires? Yardfires? I dunno, but whatever you call it, I've been loving sitting by our fire pit after a hard day of home improvement work with a good pumpkin beer (Shipyard's Pumpkinhead pictured above). There have also been copious s'mores. It's amazing. 2. Greenroom Accordion Folder and Notebook. I've been looking for a nice and organized way to store all the coupons, gift cards, paint swatches, lists and other. . . Read more »
You guys know that I'm kinda little bit obsessed with microwave cakes (or mug cakes as some folks call them). I think they are a great, healthy way to have a sweet treat. Because of the high yield, baking can be a dangerous task for people trying to watch what they eat. Even those of us with iron-clad willpower (not me!) will have a hard time turning down those three dozen cookies or that whole cake sitting in the kitchen.. . . Read more »
I was planning on writing this whole big long post about the virtues of menu-planning (it's awesome!), but then I got sucked into no less than half a season's worth of The Vampire Diaries. And all my blogging time got gobbled up by the blood-sucking Salvatore brothers. Damn them and their brooding!

So yes, go. . . Read more »
I hope you guys aren't sick of hearing about my many epiphanies from the Anytime Fitness conference last weekend. I have one more to share with you before we get back to regularly scheduled Wholefully-ness tomorrow (stay tuned for a post about menu planning). And this one is a doozy. Like a it-totally-hit-me-the-face-like-a-ton-of-emotionally-charged-bricks kind of epiphany. I mentioned this earlier in the week, but one of the Member Success stories that was highlighted this weekend was the story of Allison Wetherbee. She's a bubbly, energetic happy. . . Read more »
I'm confident enough to admit when I'm wrong (most of the time). And let me tell you, I was wrong about Drew Manning. Unless you live under a rock (if so, I hope it's a very nicely-appointed rock), you probably heard about Drew Manning's story a few months ago. He's the trainer who purposely gained and lost 70 pounds in a year so he could get a better idea of what his overweight clients felt like. You, remember? This guy: [caption. . . Read more »
1. I felt really intimidated going to the Anytime Fitness conference. I felt like I was going to be only size 16 girl in a room full of fit and judgy people. So. Not. True. They were all super welcoming and nice and amazing and all different shapes and sizes and colors. I really need to build a bridge and get over my issues. 2. I wasn't kidding when I said yesterday that I damaged my vocal cords. I haven't. . . Read more »
Gosh, guys. I have so much to tell you. If you follow me on social media at all, you probably noticed that Babyface and I packed up the car and drove up to Chicago this weekend for the Anytime Fitness annual conference. I was invited to the event as a VIP (which is laughable to me—there are a lot of important people in this world, and I don't really think I'm one of them) and we snagged Babyface a ticket. . .
