Opening the Well-Being Window

Opening the Well-Being Window

One of the coolest things about One Year No Beer is the daily email they send for the first 90 days of the challenge to keep you motivated and remind you why you chose to do this challenge in the first place. It’s been over 65 days now; 2/3 the way through. I don’t feel as deprived or socially awkward...


Friday the 13th has always been a lucky day.

More recently, I was trying to keep up with Fitness Friday posts, but I’ve found it hard to update the post and track what my workouts have been at the end of the week in order to get it out on time. So, I’m trying something...
