Some days I need a little more motivation than others. Today was one of those days.

The London Olympics sure have been exciting! First is was gluten-free Dana Vollmer that scored gold, now it is Jennifer Suhr! Suhr won gold in the pole vault on Monday. She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2011. I find it fascinating that both of these athletes have found success with the gluten-free diet. Something [...]
I am a chatter box this morning and no one else in my house is awake. Because of that, I will put my thoughts down here. Lucky you!
