Sunglasses, pens, candy, crumpled up receipts, a notebook, and credit cards. You name it, I had it in there.

From that day forward I made the decision to let go of the excess baggage so to speak, and only bring with me what IRead More →

I’ve used the excuses I’m to tired, that I’m to busy, or I just simply don’t feel like going. Not long ago, if I didn’t feel like working out–I’d skip the gym session all together.

I gave up eating meat when I found out that I was highly allergic to beef, and slightly allergic to chicken. After that I decided to stop eating meat all together; and to be honest I never really missed it. The biggest challenge for me was finding what to eat in its place. There are many benefits to cutting meat out ofRead More →
