Yet, in the age … Continue reading It’s not about the exercise, it’s about accountability
College is stress. It’s a world of, “do your work”, “study for that test”, “earn some cash” and to top it all off, “don’t fail.” With the constant pressures of school and classes, exercising tends to take a back seat. While many older students have found balance between class, work, exercise and socializing, freshmen going … Continue reading Can you avoid the Freshman 15?
My husband and I were chatting not long after the NW Georgia Women's Expo and we both noted how many people came up to my my booth asking if I was associated with a gym?

I would think about whether or not I was a good … Continue reading Exercise can help alleviate depression
