The Spiritual Implications of Changing My Workout Routine

Welcome to a stream of consciousness post where I process and share at the same time. So, that title is kinda tongue in cheek, but also kinda not. It's clearly no secret that i have really struggled to reach my fitness/ fat loss goals the past four years since my sweet Baby Duck was born, [...]

Super Bowl Food and what comes after

Last Night was the Super Bowl, and MY BOYS WON!!! That was awesome and feels really good, but y'know what doesn't feel good? My body.

Nine lbs that I worked really, unbelievably hard for. I'll be honest, I've been pretty spun up the past couple [...]
