Day 3 Brings the Tears
It took Tyson pushing me out the door to go this morning. It wasn't because I didn't want to. I had simply mentioned I may forgo this morning and instead go do a typical workout in the evening. I kind of miss being at work at 9am with the rest of the crew. Tyson...

Memorial Day Weekend is Here!!!
Summer is NOT my favorite season, for the sole purpose that the heat and humidity is not my friend. If it were 75 degrees with no humidity all year round, I could do that. But not 80 degrees with 90% humidity. I want my summer dresses to blow with the breeze, not stick to my...
