Monday, January 18, 2021      8 comments

Tonight I got home from work and it was really tempting to just to curl up on the couch and eat some junk food. But I didn't. I drank my water, did a quick workout, and skipped the candy. Getting the water in is tough. It still isn't my favo... Read more

Tuesday, January 12, 2021      7 comments
