Supplement education – family style.

Last night, in the middle of our first significant snowfall of the season (which feels weird to say that, given where we live… but a different story for another day), my son, while splashing around in the bathtub, sending Ducky sailing through the air to plop messily in the bubbly water, points to my phone […]

Program changing. Need to stay focused because: Shoulders.

I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in other programs. Ones either created by a trainer friend of mine who lives in my town, or some of the fit pros I follow on social media.

When You Come Full circle.

I feel like I’ve sort of come full circle in my fitness journey, but yet, I’ve done more than come full circle. I started working out, at home, awkwardly and privately, to some VHS tapes I bought (I feel like I’m dating myself there by saying that). I progressed from there to printouts from magazines […]
