Three Workouts For When You Are Stuck Inside

Ok, I get it. Unless I was writing this from Buffalo, NY, I really shouldn’t be allowed to complain about the weather, but I’ve never let rules stop me before. It’s officially cold and snowy here in Milwaukee, leaving me feeling like a hermit again.

Corgi and Baby

I called around 11 and they said she was doing great by then. I’m sure once she met her new buddies and got the lay of the land she was fine. I’ll let you know more later in the week, but for now… whew. [Read more...]
