Now that February is almost behind us, perhaps you have been working diligently during these past few weeks to achieve your fitness goals. Perhaps you have been swimming, strength training, practicing yoga, or just walking or jogging in the fresh air. If you made New Year’s resolutions to be more fit or to work out … Continue reading Fitness Friday: Five Fixes To Save Your Workouts
Over the years, I have seen too often how New Year’s resolutions are abandoned.

In our rushed world, now filled with fears of viruses, etc, many of us have forgotten what it's like to be cozy.
