5 Ways I Trick out my Salads

So I have a confession. I’m a salad lover!

This is a pic of my salad from tonight — after a few minutes of me attempting to devour it (I’m…

This weeks treats!!

This week I made sure to treat myself and take note of the treats as we’re getting ready to spend time with family — which usually means I forget about me and go all in on family time.   My first treat was to go for a sushi date with hubby!  He even let me have two bites of this awesome crispy California roll — avocado, crab, cucumber, tangy mayo, and crispy onions on top!

In honor of weigh in Wednesday, I’d like…
