Empty the Trunk – Starting Couch to 5K

Between camping (and associated junk food) plus a 3 day soccer tournament in Ft Collins, I was not surprised that I didn’t lose weight this week.  Back to the yo-yo.   But, one of the good things that came out of this week is that I figured out how to combine quality time with my kids,…More of this…
