Quick Breakfast Jump Start

I don’t know about you but I’ve never been much of a breakfast person. Oh, I think it’s incredibly important. Good protein and sustenance is vital to start your day. And my family is predominately hypo-glycemic so if we don’t get our blood sugar up then mornings aren’t pretty. So, breakfast is important!

How to get better results from Tracy Anderson’s Metamorphosis

I was once a sucker for infomercials. Oddly, there was something kind of fun about watching these commercials that make life a little simpler; promise big change with minimal effort for only 3 payments of $9.99. And, to be fair, some of them were pretty cool. My two favorite purchases were my TotalGym and Tracy Anderson’s Metamorphosis. While the TotalGym is great, you kind of have to have the space for it. It folds up […]

Our Favorite Organization Apps

I love my phone. It’s this tiny little computer full of resources and information that fits in my back pocket, always handy, always accessible. It’s fabulous. If you can organize it. Which is, of course, the catch. Just because information is digital doesn’t mean that it’s easy to find, or in your phone rather than in your head, or on a dozen pieces of paper scattered throughout the house and in your purse and the […]
