Let's be Real... It's Not! “I wish I could eat healthy.” Have you ever said that? You know the drill. Start a diet excited. Get through the first week and crave something bad. Resistance only lasts so long before you have no desire to eat healthy anymore. You miss the doughnuts, pizza, ice-cream, candy, pop… … Continue reading How to Eat Healthy… It’s Easy!
What is More Painful than an Injury?
Taken by Allison Dougherty If you have ever exercised for an extended amount of time, you know that injuries are bound to happen sometime down the road.
