I struggled to straighten my spine against the 10 pounds hanging next to my side. The weight of my purse straps seared into my shoulder.

Healthy holiday appetizers will help you stick to your eating plan and stay healthy throughout the holiday season.
My eyes scanned the appetizers at my friend’s Christmas party, searching for something – anything – I could eat without feeling a pang of regret later.

I’m guessing you’re busy.
As in, sometimes you feel like you don’t even have time to breathe. Working late, taking the kids here and there, dealing with the endless stream of issues that pop up every day.
Sometimes we get so busy just trying to get it all done. Checking off all the boxes. Crossing things off the to-do list.
Getting stuff done is great – I’m a big believer in achievement and taking action. But what good is checking off all those boxes if you’re the in the same place at the end of the week? What good is achievement to you as a woman if it isn’t a transformative experience?
