Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Bites

I’m a certified nut butter addict and anything Peanut Butter is pretty much fantastic in my book. Even since I was a little kid, peanut butter candies were my favorite (think Reese’s Pieces and Peanut Butter Cups).

My Favorite Oven Roasted Carrots

It’s been an extremely long time since I’ve partaken in a What I ate Wednesday post. This probably has a lot to do with that thing called summer.

Finding Fitness Accountability

After loosing 130 pounds, you can imagine that I get many questions from people whom are looking to change their lives and loose weight. That’s great! And I’m flattered that you think enough of me to bother asking for my input ....more

Eats & Exercise For The Day

Any morning that starts with an almost empty nut butter jar is a good one in my book. Even if it’s not a nut butter. This morning’s oats were enjoyed with the remnants of my delicious homemade sunflower seed butter, with the addition of bananas, almonds, and chocolate nonpareils ....more

In continuing my review series of the new Beachbody PiYo DVDS’s, the next workout on the list is called: “Define: Lower Body”.
