Why We Gain Weight During the Holidays

I have discovered the secret! It came to me while looking over my calendar for the month of December and realizing that I will be missing more Zumba classes than I attend for the next month.  Since I’m a Zumba addict, I’m pretty pissed about this but it did provide some insight into why we … Continue reading

Do you believe in signs? Not like astrological signs, but the kind that make you feel like you’re going in the right direction. I am a huge believer in the universe telling me whether or not I’m making the right decisions. Obviously I don’t depend on signs or wait for them or live my life … Continue reading
