BACK IN THE GYM: WORKING OUT

at the end of december i joined the ymca and it feels SOOOOO good to be working out again. i’ve always been pretty active but the last few months of last year i definitely was a lot more relaxed with exercising. i mean unless you call daily walks in the neighborhood exercise but really that was for my own sanity.…
