90 Day Health Challenge: Week 9

Today I want to talk to you about products- the ones that help us reach our health potential.

90 Day Health Challege: Week 7

The weeks are really flying by here! Overall, I feel good about my progress with my self-induced program- a personal trainer would be nice, though. I think I'd be more inclined to go further with my fitness level; lunges are just no fun unless someone is standing over you barking, "One more, you can do one more, you lazy cow!

90 Day Health Challenge: Week 6

Oh, crap...this thing is halfway over! And, I wish I could say that I'd reached all of my mid-point goals - not so much, but I haven't given up.

90 Day Health Challenge: Week 5

In the overall picture of my health challenge, this week wasn't so bad; in terms of the short seven day period, it sucked. It was one laced with a horrible head cold and that same old PMS thing that kept me bloated and grumpy last month. The cold at least kept me popping my extra vitamin C, D, B, and drinking a deluge of liquids. I was reminded of how dry my throat was about every 15 minutes during the night from the inability to breathe through my nose.
