Change Challenge Day 2 – What I ate Today & Daily Exercise

I couldn’t find my fitbit and ate wayyy to much.  I kept track of the food, for the most part.  I’m fairly convinced that I’ll never be able to get off of these diet pills.  The second I stop, I start eating up a storm again.  I’m up 5 lbs so I started taking them […]

Private Dinner Party with a Twist

Several years ago, I hosted a dinner for some single friends.  Four guys and four women.  One of my guy friends invited three of his friends and I invited three of mine.  The wine was flowing (for me the Effen Black Cherry and diet Coke) It was a phenomenal evening and I ended up meeting a guy […]
