Stronger U Food Diary: Week 1

I can’t even tell you how many diets my mom has tried over the years, but I feel like every month or so for my entire life it was always something new.  You know how you always say you won’t turn out like your mom and then you do?  Well, this was one of those things.  I wasn’t going to always try new diets.  And then….I became adult, and (in this aspect) I became my mother. Guess what?  I’m trying a new diet. The vegan thing in January wasn’t really a ‘diet,’ it was more like an experiment.  We wanted to see if Lance’s blood pressure would go down and hey, if we lost weight in the process that would […]

Gingham on Gingham

I am TOTALLY obsessed with gingham this season.  Who would have thought??  I think gingham is traditionally preppy, but I’m loving that there are so many twists on the classic this year.  I have at least 4 new pieces of gingham in my closet from this season!

Let’s Talk About Money Honey

I don’t know why I want to talk about this subject.  Maybe it’s because no one ever taught me about money, so I figure some of you might be in the same boat.  Maybe it’s because it’s so faux-pas to talk about money and they say that plays into women making less in the workplace.  Maybe it’s because most articles you’ll find about money are written by men in finance and are hard to relate to.  Whatever the reason, you don’t learn about money management in school, so unless your parents teach you, you’re kind of screwed.  I was pretty poor after college (my first job out of college I made $10 an hour as a 1099 employee and when […]
