  • Keep sparking!

    1/23/2017 3:26:38 PM, by ISABELLE84

    Did you know that if you take one rest day a week, it means you only spent 14% of the year resting? So, it also means that you spent 86% of the year working out. If it was an exam, most people would be happy to get 86% (I sure would!). If I do 12 000 steps per day, that means I walk an average ... Read more
