So...I am back from Sedona which was amazing...however, my trip out there was anything but! My four year old trooper put up with over 15 hours of travel which was nothing short of a miracle.

In addition, I have been testing the Striiv and have been very impressed at how it is helping to keep me motivated to just keep moving! Not only is it really cool looking (everyone keeps asking if it is a mini-phone), but by keeping ...
