    WW Freestyle: First Impressions

    Today, after hearing about the changes all week long, we finally got the new Weight Watchers Freestyle program. I’ve heard good things, grumblings, and more, but honestly? I’m really glad the changes are here. One of the things I love about Weight Watchers releasing program changes at the end of the year is that it gives me a bit of a reset before the new year begins. Because let’s face it – EVERYONE is going to hope on the weight loss train come January 1, and I’m happy to be just a little bit ahead of it. So, first impressions…

    My 2017 Word of the Year and Goals

    Happy 2017! I know so many people were so ready for the new year to start, but I for one am a little sad to see 2016 go – after all, it’s the year Ella was born and will always hold a special place in my heart. On the other hand, there’s something so refreshing about a new year and a new start on things. I’ve never been a fan of dedicated New Year’s resolutions… because I don’t believe they work. I like to start my goals shortly after I think of them and start each day as the first…

    Staying Healthy During Holiday Travel

    Staying Healthy During Holiday Travel

    Without a doubt, fall is my favorite time of year. The weather, the fashion, the comfort food – I just can’t get enough of it all. In my family, it also means birthday season is here since the vast majority of my family have fall and winter birthdays. It also means that the holidays are approaching faster than we ever expected, and along with it, holiday travel. I am very fortunate in that most of our family lives close by, so we don’t have to travel far during this season, but I know there are so many families that do travel for…

    7 Meal Planning Tips

    7 Meal Planning Tips

    Do you have those things in your life that you do every week, or even every day, without fail? Those things that are so routine, so normal in your life that you don’t even think to talk about? I think we all do. I was talking to some people at work the other day, and I realized that for me, one of those things is meal planning, and that’s something that other people struggle with. I’ve been a meal planner for as far back as I can remember. In high school, I cooked dinner most nights once my mom went…
