November 11, 2016

I’m kicking my exercise into higher gear, after a couple low-key months due to injury, and I’m embarking on a new program that will help. It’s the Bowflex 6 Week Challenge, and it’s available on the Bowflex 3DT app that syncs with my Bowflex SelectTech 560 dumbbells.

But it’s not any ordinary selfie… it’s taken in the exact spot where a scene from the new NBC hit show “This Is Us” was filmed! And I can prove it, with this screengrab of Chrissy Metz (who plays Kate), standing in the same place: Read the rest of this entry »
