⁠If you’ve got a sec, I have a little story to tell… ⁠⠀ It all started last fall when Orangetheory moved to our town.

If you know me, you know that I’m not much of a light snacker. I’ll rarely grab a bag of chips or a granola bar by itself to hold me over. I like to feel FULL after I’ve eaten, so what I really prefer are “mini meals” as opposed to true snacks.  A lot of the time, I will actually snack on small portion of leftovers from lunch or dinner in order to get a…

Hi, guys! The start of the CNC Spring Nutrition Challenge is just around the corner (Monday, April 9th), and I’m so excited to officially begin my own personal meal plan. If you missed my previous post, I hired one of our lovely DTFN coaches to work with me, so I can partake in a meal plan along with the CNC readers/clients who signed up for the challenge.
