So this is a weird post because basically it is an apology to Theresa.  Several months ago, Theresa interviewed me to write a blog for her new book Ace Your Health. She wanted a few different personalities to showcase what *living* the book was all about. So I charmed her, told her all about my. Continue Reading…

Tuesday 5 April 2011 . (14)

I think I am about to pick a fight with Theresa.  Obviously, I’d rather not – especially since this week’s challenge is all about gathering with friends, hanging out and eating and enjoying one another’s company.

Canned sunshine. Totally one of the reasons I adore Theresa!!

I’m writing this from the treadmill, so I apologize in advance for any errors, sweat or curse words! But according to Theresa, (and my hips), you need to work off an extra 200 to 500 calories for every restaurant meal you eat.  Holy Cow!  I mean that literally, I wish the cow (aka burger) I.
