Hey peeps! I’m going to let you in on a little secret here. Once upon a time, I used to have a little side gig doing electronics reviews.

Generally, the book is an exploration of the philosophy [...]
Wellness Rebels the world over know that there are really no excuses when it comes to sticking to their fitness routines.
That’s why I was so excited to see the picture and the caption below from my good friend Meghan, who is a wonderful embodiment of the phrase “No Excuses”:
