I am on the part of my fitness cycle where I pick things back up again. My chosen route, this time, is dusting off the old DVDs. Just call me vintage! The first day was a slow process but I got the job done. Jillian Michaels did sit frozen on the TV for over an hour and a half while I hunted down my hand
Waking up in the morning is never pleasant for me. Really, I’m unsure of what would be required for me to become a person who wakes and bounces and smiles at 6am.

Just days after I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I was whammed in the face with a hard-core flu. Flu with a severity that I hadn’t experienced in years.
