Post Valentine’s Day Workout

Today is workout Wednesday, and yesterday was Valentine’s Day. If you are anything like me, you took full advantage of Valentine’s Day to eat delicious, terrible for your health, food(s).

I now know how terrible this was for my hair even when it was looking healthier.  Read more
