So gaming up to do the whole thing myself this year.
Forget the Treadmill. Get a Dog. So true. The first time I really started to get a fitness program and stick with it was when we got our first dog, Scoop. Scoop & Georgia LOVE walks, and I’m so happy that its light enough at night again to resume our long walks with podcasts.
