Master Motivation

Does it seem like motivation is a now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t phenomenon? One day you’ve got it, and you’re happily following your healthy lifestyle plan.

Skinny Recipe: Warm Spiced Fruit

We have reached the time of year that is defined by cooler weather, shorter days, flannel, crunchy leaves, bonfires, and spiced fruit. Warm Spiced Fruit is one of my favorite desserts for this time of the year, and this recipe is super easy to make. Grab some friends, create this treat, watch some football, and just enjoy the positives of this season.
