A healthy and quick breakfast! On my Friday’s off, I enjoy experimenting with new breakfast ideas. Today was no exception, but it had to be quick.

Seriously…Tastes Just Like Tollhouse…Only Healthier! Sorry for the short hiatus…I’m going to work hard to update with my new recipes and clear out my photo inventory this week in the evenings. The reason for the hiatus was my grandmother-in-law’s death and funeral. We had to fly to Philly this past weekend to celebrate her life and I wanted to celebrate ...

Week 4: Another Week Down and Some Great News We’re now in the process of closing in on our first full month of training and so far, so good!

Week 11: Getting into Double Digit Runs…and Learning to Slow Down Plus a Special Pennsylvania Dutch Recipe This week was the roughest week yet for us!
