Hot Yoga = Pool of Sweat

I am not even kidding about the title of this post. I have never done hot yoga before and the last time I did yoga was in Canada—when I lived there…and still worked for Blockbuster.

Meal Plan

After taking stock of how I have been eating and feeling, I decided this week need an inspired meal plan. I want to eat in a way that helps me get through sticky moments with my tendency to eat chocolate in the afternoon.
