Well, Sandy is in full force as I’m writing this post and I have a feeling the power is going to go out in the middle of me writing it. All I can hear is wind, the sounds of things hitting the side of the house, and sirens. Yesterday, I made sure to stock up […]

This morning I was writing October 22nd on everything and here it is October 24th. I am in total denial of how fast this year has flown by! Yesterday, I did a total upper body workout including arms and followed it with a semi-long plank. Earlier in the day, I read Tina’s plank challenge idea […]
