June 15, 2017 – June 21, 2017 It’s been my favorite week so far. I only say that because it was my First Father’s Day this week. But there’s another reason. I’ve been enjoying every second of what I’m doing to better myself over the last week. Let me explain. Food: I’m still going super […]

April 13, 2017 – April 19, 2017 After last week’s disappointment from my weigh in, this week was completely different. A complete shift in my mindset. I spent the majority of my week making sure I got my food in on budget. I knew that lunch on Sunday, which was Easter, was going to be […]

On Wednesday morning, I started to see a huge amount of posts on social media talking about Starbucks’ new Unicorn Frapuccino drink. (source) This drink is a novelty that has bright colors and supposedly it’s sour. And it’s got everyone talking. I’m not going to talk about how it in a negative light like most […]
