There is no denying that getting in shape can be expensive. Even an economical route will inevitably cost a few dollars here and there as you begin your fitness project.

The Cost of Muscle

After I had my second baby, (sweet baby girl Rory, who can do no wrong and has Nate wrapped around her precious little Cheeto stained finger) I was feeeeeelin that extra baby weight. I gained 50 lbs with each pregnancy, and being the all or nothing personality that I am, I was trying so hard […]

I’m not talking about an apple watch, or fitbit (we’ll come back to those later…) So what exactly makes a good workout tracker? Do you really need one? Your feelings mean squat. Here’s […]
