Losing weight when you can’t afford to.

Gym memberships, fancy protein shakes, diet pills, fitbits, expensive gym wear, personal trainer, fitness apps with a monthly payment, home gym equipment — it’s all so…expensive. But can you lose weight without it?

Week of 04/23/17

This weekend might just go down as the most beautiful one ever. Seriously, it was so pretty! The weather was perfect — sunny and clear. We took full advantage of it and spent quite a bit of time outdoors.

Happy Easter! I’m posting a little later than I’d like to, because we had a fairly busy weekend. It was a fun one though!
