Oh, hello fall. Where the heck did you come from? Even though we have technically been in the fall season for the past few weeks, it hasn’t always seemed like it, thanks to some milder-than-normal temperatures. I also know for a fact that there were not this many leaves in our yard yesterday, and this…

The First Adjustment

Winking smile

This morning, I ended up having to make the first adjustment to the workout challenge. After yesterday’s double lower body workout, I had a feeling I would wake up sore and quite honestly, I kind of saw this comin’. Sure enough, as I woke up and rolled out of bed, my entire gluteal area, for…
