While I’m participating in the WundaBody Challenge I’ve been cutting sugar out of my diet. I think that’s probably been the hardest part for me.

The first week I started the challenge I remember going to Trader Joe’s and seeing that they had just gotten all their seasonal food

Since our flight back to LA was cancelled because of the snow storm, we were able to go snowshoeing!
