Sugar. I’m so into it, I love sweets. Love love. So when I let it get out of hand, I know I need a personal intervention.
For the last 3 years around this time I’ve done the 21 Day Sugar Detox so that I can kick my sugar habit. (I will link to it at the end of the post).
Here’s the thing: in life I pretty much always have a sweet tooth, and when the holiday season comes around I’m in my happiest happy place.

I sometimes think that if I lived just a bit further away I could warrant driving (only in the rain), but I don’t, so on go the rain boots, and out comes the umbrella.
I have to say that once I get myself to the gym on the rainy days, I tend you stretch out my workouts so I can avoid my rainy walk home. Continue reading “A Little Chest, Triceps & Core”
