I headed out on Monday on my last business trip of the year. I was a little discouraged because after Boston I was up 4 pounds and there was honestly no reason for it. I made good choices and kept telling myself that I was still puffy from th... Read more

The trip to Boston this week was successful on so many levels. It was insanely busy and I loved it. We worked 14 hour days for the most part, by the time I got back to the hotel at night I just didn't have the energy to log on. This means I went... Read more
