The last year has been a long, hard road. I honestly didn't care about anything. I didn't care about me, eating right, or even living. Seems like once depression sets in it is so hard to come out of. But I am coming out of it. I still have days ... Read more

The past month or so I have been very sporatic about exercise. I need to step back & focus on the important thing here - ME! Yesterday I set myself up an exercise plan. Days to ST & days to do cardio. I'm not going to push myself to do an h... Read more
