I want to achieve total wellness in 2016 – come what may.



I have something very personal to share with you today.

Health and wellness are incredibly important to me, but I let them fall by the wayside at the end of 2015. Wine and holiday cheer were a bit more important, but I thought, “eh, I’ll turn it around in the New Year.”

Then in January, a close family friend passed away very unexpectedly. I’ve been trying not to let it overtake my efforts, especially because health + wellness could have made all the difference for him — all the more reason to take care of oneself.
