Fitness Goals 2021

Well, here we are with just a few days left of 2020. Looking back at previous fitness challenges I’ve set throughout the last year, I’m disappointed in the lack of progress I’ve made. Although some things changed – I’m more mindful of the foods I put into my body and how much I eat –…

Fitness Tips: measuring progress – without a scale (repost)
