  • Fitness Update: September 2021 - As some of you may know, fitness became an important part of my life in February of 2016.

  • Fitness Update: November 2020 - This year, my fitness journey took a turn. It was an unexpected turn, to say the least. We have all had to adapt to a new way of living, and the gym was no longer an option, at least for me. I’m not going to lie, I did not make a ton of progress this […]

  • The Power of Your Mind - What you tell yourself, you will start to believe. This is something that I have come to realize in recent years.
