3-Day Weekend

What a hectic weekend this was! I can’t believe yesterday was my first day off for non-medical reasons in a year.

We felt really bad keeping him and Trina cooped up in our townhouse ... Read More »

I used to say I didn’t want ... Read More »

Motivation In Different Places

I love finding new ways to stay active outside the gym that I can do every day. Having two large dogs is a huge motivator to get off the couch and move around when I’m not spending time in the gym. Instead of just sitting around watching TV, I’m constantly walking dogs, playing tug and chasing around two very unpredictable pit bulls. My first dog is Trina, a beautiful 4-year-old chocolate pit bull.  She’s my running buddy when I’m up for it, but our runs only last as far as she can go. She had two ACL/MCL surgeries last year ...
