Happy New Year!
Are we all ready to get healthy again…before the barrage of Superbowl dips and Valentine’s chocolate take over?
Because, um, contrary to what everyone says, food at the holidays does have calories. Bunch of liars!
I don’t even want to know how much weight I gained in December. And even if I did, I can’t. Since I
threw my scale in the trash don’t own a scale anymore.
