The Rules of Self-Esteem

Can I talk about self-esteem today? It seems like everywhere there is an outcry to "Be yourself" and a general attitude of "Don't care what other people think of you, just be happy." Which is great and all, but all of these declarations that are supposed to encourage a positive self-esteem and self-image also come... Continue Reading →

The only time it seemed like I was breathing through something was when I was stretching. That all changed... Continue Reading →

May Workout Routine

It's May and I am so excited for this month's workout routine. All this week I've been struggling with almost zero motivation to workout.
