My Fitness Goals

Don’t you wish salad was more like pizza? I would eat so much more salad. Pizza is my favorite food. I could literally eat pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday. Constant consumption of pizza is probably one of the reasons for my post-college weight gain. It doesn’t help...

We Joined A Gym

My Cubicle Must-Haves

While most our us have employers that supply us with all the basics – pens, sticky notes, stapler, paper clips – these aren’t the only things we need in order to survive the work day (especially if you are particularly girly like myself). Thus I have compiled a carefully...

Finding Positivity In Each Day
