Day 9&10 - 30 Day Challenge
I had to shift things around. Yesterday I had to have an MRI and because I am claustrophoic, I have to take Valum to be able to not freak out inside the machine. Well, needless to say, I was asleep by 7:30 last night and did not get my workout i... Read more

How do you know that your workout is good? What are the indicators that you use to measure if it's good or not?
