The keto diet has been making its rounds through the diet-sphere, gaining traction and a lot of attention. As the dos and don’ts of the diet get tossed around, like a game of telephone, the message seems to get a little jumbled along the way.

It’s officially October! Bring on the pumpkin everything, cold weather and holidays! I was sad to see summer go but as soon as they started stocking the shelves at the grocery store with anything and everything pumpkin and I was able to wear a hoodie without dying of h...

I am not strong because I lift weights, I am not strong because I have muscles and I am not strong because I’ve played soccer, ran a half marathon, snowboard, have competed in a bodybuilding competition and am a powerlifter. Sure, all of those things have made me stron...

This week, Derek and I are leaving for vacation to Chattanooga, TN with my family. This will be our second time going to Chattanooga and we’re both so excited—it’s really the perfect vacation spot for us as it is named one of the best outdoor cities in the world and ho...
