Hip Hop Dance for the Win

I lost momentum again. I just didn’t want to.  I have no real reason not to work out.  I have the time, the resources and a sweet home gym. I was looking at Just Dance for the Nintendo Switch but just saw it as a waste of money.  Not that it’s not worth it, but…

Holidays, Breastfeeding, & Running – Oh my!

This week has been ultra-busy and I had the luxury of not cooking for Thanksgiving. We went over to my husband’s family’s house. With a full time job, breastfeeding and other obligations sticking to a running schedule is not the easiest but completely possible. With the help of my family, it is easy. Here’s how…
