For almost as long as I can remember, I've been either on a diet or planning to go on a diet soon. I was a "normal" sized child until age ten, when my parents got divorced (and I rapidly put on about 60 lbs over the next two years that followed). My … [Continue reading]

Bodypump 92 Review

Hey friends! How's 2015 going for you so far? It started out well for me... until I got the plague. Okay, that's a bit dramatic. I caught some awful bug that's been going around that had me out of commission for a week (and I'm still not totally 100% … [Continue reading]
