26 Days Later

It's rare that I choose a fitness program and follow it day-for-day. I like to do my own fitness routines, do what I feel like doing. Use the variety of workout equipment I have at my disposal.

Leave a Couple Bites

As you may remember, I'm working on addressing some lifestyle habits to help me on my mission to live healthier. My first attempt - Ditch the Bubbles - has been really successful so far. Even though my commitment to not drinking soda is an ongoing effort, I feel confident that I have it under control [...]
