Hello, my peeps. It’s Tuesday. That day. The day we divulge our deepest, darkest food and exercise (or whatever) secrets. On the internet. Nothing like throwing our confessions out there to the universe to purge our consciences…

Good morning, everyone!! Happy Friday!! How did you do on this week’s project? The task this week was to sit your butt in 2011, picture what 2010 was like, and write a letter to yourself about it. What hurdles you have overcome and goals you have met.

    Choose You

    I’m guilty of it and you probably are too. Most women are, in fact.
