Bacon Train.

Ahhhhhh. My entire low-back is in pain.

Let’s just say that a 6’3 chiropractor knows how to use a set of torture devices.

Damn car wreck.

On another note….I think wedding season is finally over for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I love me a good wedding, and Saturday’s wedding was top-notch, but after three weddings from April-now, I’m wedding worn-out.

My favorite part of any wedding is seeing my mom scarf a steak, salad, and plate loaded full of comfort carbs, down a glass of wine, and hit the dance floor.

Calories mean nothing.

I have training at work this week, and while my intention was to bake muffins for my co-workers and I…you know things don’t last long in my house.

I’d say that’s a pretty well balanced muffin.
