Blueberry Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Ever since we have started eating clean, pancakes and waffles have been a sad casualty.

It is sad to think about, but the holidays are over. I know that some people like to spread the holiday cheer by leaving their Christmas decorations up until February (or May). Not me. I like to start the year fresh with the house as clear of clutter as possible. *Gasp* did she just call Christmas […]

Increase Productivity with the 24 Hour Grind Strategy

There are times in either my work or personal life that I am just flat out overwhelmed. I have so many things to do or accomplish, and I feel behind.

Sausage and Kale Brown Rice Pasta

Colorado has finally started to feel like fall. This means that the cubbies in the gym, which over the summer contain only keys, are now stuffed with coats and sweats. Fall in Colorado is an exercise in managing expectations. Sometimes, fall is long and beautiful with perfect cool weather. Sometimes, the weather skips straight from summer […]
