Going cold turkey is hard for anyone. Especially when you don’t consider healthier alternatives. And then one glorious day […]

50 million pound challenge: Water Water is my friend...

Let’s rap about water. Do you drink enough? Or are you stuck on sodas and high fructose juices? Would you rather drink coffee or a mixed drink than water? Pull yourself together, sister. Water is your friend. You NEED it. And not just when you’re thirsty. I drink a little over a gallon of water […]
