What almost dying taught me about living.

Begin with Body Gratitude

Begin with Body Gratitude

It’s that time of year. When people are winding down from summer and gearing up for fall. And the “shoulding” is off the charts. I “should” join the gym. I “should” join this program.

Keep Moving: Don’t Let Summer Hijack your Fitness!

Feeling a little MEH about MOVING this time of year?! It’s not just you! There’s so much going on and it’s easy to fall away from your fitness routines.
