It’s been a good amount of time since we have had a proper grocery haul. Now getting back into it, you can see what we purchased, and how much we spent. Last week the twins were at their parent’s house visiting. So for that whole week Michael and I had a smaller grocery list and […]

Weight Loss: Day 12

Day 12: So much pain! So after that 7 mile walk yesterday, and not allowing my muscles to take a break yet, I decided that I needed to take a complete day off from exercise. After all, your body needs time to rest. The rest you take between workouts is what helps to repair your […]
