Looking for the Magic Bullet – Magazines and Weight Loss

Body Image After Baby

6 Awesome Benefits of Strength Training

I was having a conversation last week with a friend who’s been doing a lot of hiking and running recently. He mentioned that he hasn’t been strength training as much as he used to and he is starting to feel like that’s catching up to him – that he’s lost a little strength and is just […]

The Quest to Lose 10 Pounds in 6 Weeks – Week Four

This week, Fran lost exactly how much weight I gained – it’s like we swapped a pound. My pound is all down to pregnancy, of course, and not the delicious piece of red velvet birthday cake with cream cheese frosting I had at Roman’s friend’s birthday party on the weekend. I was in awe as […]
