#NSNation Update – Week 15

So  a weird thing happened on the way to Madison's First Communion this weekend.  I had a stressful long week.  I skipped Zumba, so I could get my house ready.  I didn't even mow the lawn to help Bill out (he did it himself!).  I ate some "real" food instead of all Nutrisystem food.  I was terrified of weighing in this morning.

Make the holidays feel warmer with SOL ALPACA

Oh, the weather outside is frightful here in Chicago. It feels like we went from barely fall to the deep depths of winter. Depending on where you live here in Illinois determines the amount of snow you got this last weekend. I got several inches, but further north got up to a foot! If you […]
