My Goals:
Get healthy. Be active. Defy my age.

My Program:
After trying almost literally allll the things, my body has definitively shown it responds best to low carb, trending toward keto. I'm in recovery management from nearly a decade of muscle issues, so building up low intensity cardio for now with careful pokes at body-weight resistance. Progress is happening.
