A Healthy and Strong Year | The Fresh Exchange

In order to get started on a year of chasing after health, I wanted to share not just my own personal goals with fitness but also some ways I have found that work to stay on track. See below for my tips and goals for myself this year.  CREATE RITUALS I no longer set large and lofty fitness goals at the beginning of the new year.

January, to me, has always been the first month of true winter weather. This time of year usually means deep hibernation and snow boots, for a Northern Michigan girl, but I have learned a southern winter can include an outfit beyond the warmest layers I own.

Hello Weekend

Let's Chill Out | The Fresh Exchange

Oh, it feels good to be here writing this post. We have been working all week to tie up all of our projects for the year so, for the first time, we can begin a nearly 1 month off from work and projects with Wild Measure. We will still be blogging other than the week between Christmas and New Years, but our client work is on hold until January 12th. This is meant to give our minds time…
