Get There!

I spent last weekend in Cape Cod with P’s mom, sister, aunts and a few of his female cousins. Since I am close in age with his sister and cousins, I spent most of the time chatting with them. I don’t remember how it came up, but we started to talk about our personal mantras. … Continue reading

Get Active Challenge – Final Week.

Here’s my recap of the last week of my office’s Get Active Challenge.  Fair warning – my activity levels dropped significantly from last week mostly because I no longer have a Turbo Kick class on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

After a Saturday night filled with various craft brews chased with soft pretzels it was bound to happen. Yes, I gained 0.6 pounds this week for … Continue reading
