Reaching My Goal Weight

One thing that I am commonly asked is how do I make friends in my 30s? Well, let me tell you. It is no easy fete. But it can be done. You will never be BEST friends with everyone you meet. If you find just one person where the connection is truly genuine, then you’re…

I’ve been on a bit of an emotional roller-coaster ride these past few days and feeling particularly anxious. Why? I have this new job which requires me to travel about 800 miles per week in the car at the moment. It was supposed to be a short term plan but management haven’t been making the…
