Better with Jess

Back to the Gym
Today, Oreo released the reason I need to go to the gym. Brownie Batter Oreos. image   Why Oreo?! WHY?!?!? Why could you not release these back when I did not care about my weight and what I put in my body? I would love some of these...
First Fridays and Crunchy Biscuits and Gravy
Today is the first Friday of the month, and there are so many cool things going on that I want to go 100 miles per hour and do ALL THE THINGS! Unfortunately, there is only so much you can do in a short evening time frame with a toddler. Tonight, First Friday returns to...
Stressed? Try Coloring!
Coloring and coloring books are usually something that we associate with children. I have long been a fan of coloring. I would buy Lisa Frank or other child-themed coloring books for days and go home and color. I recently discovered they make adult coloring books, which are kind of pricey but they are so...

Why I Will Never Wear White to Another Workout
Last night, I totally killed my eating better. Tyson text me while Blake and I were at the grocery store notifying me to get ready to go out to dinner with his best friend Brian. We met at Buffalo Wild Wings. It was 60 cent traditional wing night. I can never turn down wings....
Back to the Gym and Remembering “Blaranda”
After being gone from the gym since Thursday, I was itching to get back. There was no Zumba on Friday morning, Saturday morning I was busy cleaning my house with Blake, and Sunday and Monday, Tyson and I left for Evansville with the Shelby County Co-Op. So I had been gone from the gym...
All I Want is Ben & Jerry’s….
Due to the injury to my calf, I chose to take a break today from working out. There was a lot of work to get done at the office, so I went without my workout this morning. Just because I did not work out though does not mean my new eating habits went out...
