Be-You-Tifully Fit: In the wake of a relapse.

Over the last couple month of 2017, I had given up. I admit it. I wish I could pinpoint what it was that did it, but I cannot. Life was as it normally was in our household. The only new stressors were the CPT test and my husband’s college studies. And since summer running with […]
