Battling the Winter Blues

admin / February 11, 2018

Here we are in the beginning of February and the winter seems to have no end. The weather here in Syracuse is cold, wet, rainy, snowy, and slushy. The snow banks turn an awful shade of gray.

My Fitness Journey

admin / October 8, 2017

I am on a personal journey to become a fit, healthier version of me.  I began this journey in January 2017. I was at my highest weight, eating unhealthy, not exercising and pretty much feeling crappy about my self-image. I’d like to say I started this journey because of those reasons, but I would be lying. The truth is one…
