Hey, I’m still here…

This post is months overdue, but it's been a challenge to find the right words (even for a writer). Recently, I've been struggling with some things - both physically and mentally - and I just felt that if I couldn't get my shit together, how could I possibly offer fitness or lifestyle advice with any...

Finding the Balance: Recap

It's Friday! Seriously, where did the time go this week? I blinked, and it was over. Let's do a quick recap of the last few weeks.
