    Gooooooood morning and happppppppy Friday! What a week. It was kind of a weird one with the blizzard and having Mal home for two days in a row. It seemed like a weekend, but now the weekend is here again. Whoa. Obviously, I’m not complaining. I love spending time with my boys—all three of them! Yesterday […]

    Canyon Ranch provided me with complimentary accommodations at their resort as well as a spa credit and Discover Your Fitness Age assessment. The opinions expressed are honest and all my own.

    Marathon Talk with Monica

    January 16, 2015

    Good morning! Happy FRIDAY! As you know, I’m training for the Boston Marathon with Team Stonyfield. It’ll actually be my third marathon, but since it’s been awhile since I last ran one (3+ years), I’m feeling a little rusty with my training knowledge. Well, ok, truthfully, I feel like a total newbie sometimes, so I’ve […]

    Hi, guys! I loved reading all of your comments on my 10 Truths and a Lie post. But, jeez Louise, a lot of you guys think I have zero will-power! Haha! The statement about peanut M&Ms was actually not the lie. I really, truly have not touched the bag in days (mostly because I kind of forgot […]
