Sometimes You Need a Break

This week I am focusing more on active minutes, such as standing and stepping. Stuff I can do indoors. We're going to take it easy this week. If I go outside (and I make a point of it), it won't be to any city centers anytime soon. Running is waiting for me, and I look... Continue Reading →
