New Plus Size Workout Clothes Options #MakeYourMove

Plus Size Runner Fashion from Kohl's

This is my seventh post with the Kohl's #MakeYourMove initiative. View my previous #MakeYourMove posts here, and follow the movement on social media using #MakeYourMove.

She Showed Up


There is a story that went viral this week, and it struck me so deeply. After 4 miles through a 10K, Asia Ford started to feel sick. A police officer, Lt.

My Relationship Status… with Food

Four Favorite Kitchen Essentials

This is my sixth post with the Kohl's #MakeYourMove initiative. View my previous #MakeYourMove posts here, and follow the movement on social media using #MakeYourMove. Oh food, how I love eating thee. Oh food, how I loathe cooking thee. This year I've been making a very deliberate effort to cook at home.
