Steps

I don’t own a Fitbit but I am interested in the number of steps I take daily. The powers that be suggest a goal of 10,000 steps a day. Depending where you live that could be a daunting number or your mid-day count. I moved from the remote little town of Saint Mary’s...

Bad Mood

Life is a roller coaster ride at times and bad moods make their way into your life. Often they mess with a good workout plan or a good diet but they don’t have to. I have had some of my best workouts when mad. I also found that exercise really helped me come down from...
