Workout Wednesday: Summer Solstice Workout!

Happy HUMP DAYYYY! Today has flown by for it being the longest day of the year- I’m not even sure if I can believe that today had the most daylight. I follow this instagrammer, NutritionStripped, and in her story today she discussed something interesting that I’ve actually been pondering lately. Workouts don’t have to be […]

R E M I S S I O N

Monday was the best day I’ve had in a long time. “Are we allowed to use the ‘R-word’? Are you saying I’m in remission?” “Yes. You can say that you’re in remission!

Hope everyone had/is having a wonderful weekend! The pup and I hung around the house thanks to thunder storms all weekend long.

Pizza Day Recap on a Friday

Gooooood Morning! And Happy Friday! Last night was date night at Hideaway Pizza, because Remicade infusion days are for pizza. I had the Sicilian, and it was good. Zack’s beer tasted awful, and that’s because it was an IPA that he didn’t order (oops-I’m not a fan of IPAs), but they quickly exchanged it for […]
