Our Next Big Adventure


You may have noticed a complete lack of fitness-related posts on this blog or social media accounts, but there’s a reason for that. I have been so crazy sick from the moment I wake up until I go to bed that it took all I had to get through my day of teaching. My weekends were spent lying on the…
