What to Expect at the Barre

I've talked about Pure Barre a few times on the blog and shared my love of it a few weeks back. If you missed it, check it out here. Today, I want to walk you through what a class will look like and some of the crazy terms you might hear!

Every class is similar in that it follows the same basic format, but you'll be doing different exercises within each set. But, don't believe that just because it's the same general format, doesn't mean it gets any easier. Trust me, it doesn't.

A Beginner's Guide to Meal Planning

So one week after recommitting to this space, here I am again. I don't know if that's actually the recommitting I meant, but at least it wasn't a month later?

I'm totally blaming this for the reason I've slacked:

She's cute, so it works as an excuse right? Great, thanks.

Today, I have some thoughts to share on meal planning. Let me preface by saying I am in NO way an expert. I literally started meal planning on Sunday. As in 3 days ago, Sunday. But, since I've just started, I have some ideas of what worked well and what I wish I had done differently.. starting with the gash on my thumb - I definitely wish I had done that differently.

But, really. I hope at least a couple of these are helpful to you!

GUYS. I wrote this entire post, hit publish and it was gone. GONE. Talk about frustrating. That is not a good omen for the goal I have written below... Oh, well. I'm back and I'm rewriting. So I hope you all enjoy it ;)

I'm not one for resolutions. In school, I set my resolutions with the school years and never followed through. After college, I've just set lose ideas in my head and never followed through with them like "lose weight" or something else random.

But, as the year ended and blogland was all in a tizzy with goals, I got caught up in it and started thinking about 2015 and everything I (and we as a family) accomplished.
