Cassie Week 8: Serious Business

I don’t want to stop my life just to lose weight quickly. Hell, I don’t want to wake up an hour earlier just to squeeze fitness into my day or pre-plan my meals. Am I stubborn? As hell.  Am I stupid? In my approach, yes. This is not a great attitude for keeping healthy. This […]
