October: Strength Train

So…did you say no to soda last month? I sure hope so! I can’t even believe we only have 3 more months until 2014 is behind us. I hope you are feeling healthier and finding that these small changes each month are making a difference. 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Feature

Look, we’ve lived all around the country.
