    Hard, busy day at work, but I am drinking more water. Kristen showed me a new exercise, then to relieve the pressure of the accumulated fluid on my knee, muscles and nerves, she taped my shin, calf and lower leg. I felt pain relief almost immediately. She did massage that painful set of musc... Read more

I woke up at 5:50am this morning and wanted to go back to sleep. I was so tired. But I got up and went for my jogging training and kicked butt! Woo-hoo!... Read more
