    I don't know about you but the Christmas cookies are ABUNDANT over here. I think I've averaged somewhere between 2-5 cookies every day for the last week! I mean, seriously...between what I've been baking for gifts and get togethers and what I've been gifted by friends and clients, it's been a sugar extravaganza. I'm probably going [...]

    Good morning! I awoke to pouring down rain, thunderstorms and a really loud alert on my phone that we were under a tornado warning.

    I have a great workout to share with you today! It's quick, challenging and combines cardio and strength. Win, win!

    When I opened the front door this morning to find this... I promptly closed the door and retreated back into the warmth of my house.
