Thirsty Thursday!

Thirsty Thursday!

Starting my day out right with some HYDRATION!!  Focused in on water and limiting my caffeine intake today.  Instead of my trusty cup of coffee, my sidekick this morning is a lightly sweetened chai tea.   Alongside my tea, is my trusty water cup looking like I’ll need a refill soon.  I keep this by my bedside most nights so I can sip right before bed and as soon as I wake up.   Random Story:  I’m a side/stomach sleeper…

And I’m Back!

And I’m Back!

Nothing like a long break to make you miss me!!  Right??   Okay – so in reality, it’s been like a slippery slope of (1) being lazy, (2) playing catch up, and (3) having nothing to write about.   Here’s a quick summary of what’s been happening: Weight Loss Definitely stalled… Ever since Christmas break, I’ve been disconnected from my body.  The stress of traveling and then coming back to reality (times one million) really has me in my head too much.
