Today was another stressful one. My work To Do list is looking pretty good. My life To Do list is another story. Highlights of my post-work day included… Making time for strength training. I left work with enough time before […]

I have to get out the door, but wanted to document now that it’s going to be a great day. Why, you ask? I slept great. I passed out so hard last night that I never even got under the […]
