Finding Balance: Winter Wellness with GNC PUREDGE

Many thanks to GNC PUREDGE for sponsoring today’s winter wellness discussion! As I mentioned in last week’s post, I am definitely struggling to steer clear of sweets this holiday season.  Couple that with the bubbly, mimosas, and wine at just about every holiday get together and I will admit that healthy eating (and drinking!) is not exactly happening right now.  Why is that when you need to maintain your energy levels the most, that you struggle the most?  Between the normal {Read More}

Sweet Treats!

Today I received an e-mail from Hey Cupcake! as they announced their latest cupcake, the John Lemon. Mmmm…. Cupcakes! Photo Courtesy of Hey Cupcake!
