My Top 15 Health + Fitness Tips.

Over the years, I have read about and tried a TON of different health and fitness books, workouts and diets. Some have worked, some haven’t, but along the way, I learned a lot about what works and doesn’t work for my body.

I’ve been meaning to post pictures of his nursery for months, but I’m glad I didn’t, because now it includes the last touch of his first birthday high chair banner hung on the wall!
