Week 2 progress report of Strong Curves Booty-ful Beginnings at Home. Working out at home has given me a chance to get familiar with the exercises, gain confidence in performing them, and no excuses to skip.
Strong Curves is a program based on the idea that women can and should lift heavy loads and that doing so will help them reach their goals faster than any cardio or low weight high rep routine ever could without turning you into a bulky man.
Repeat after me: I love New England. I love New England. I love… San Diego. When people ask me where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to, there’s only one answer I have for them: snowed in and digging out.
Today’s stuff I like Friday includes Mercedes-Benz fashion week: a fistful of wolves, the X-men theme song, Middle Earth, eco urns, butterflies, and more.
A status update on my January goals and some advice on how to keep at it. Mostly, attitude. Keep going even if you stumble. Just keep swimming.

It’s time for the Kitchn Cure and for me it couldn’t have come at a better moment.
