There’s many numbers to crunch today, but before I start, check this out!
I look forward to this post all year! You know I share my weigh-in results and workout progress report every month. But when a new year starts, I put together a report that encompasses the whole prior year. I find it very interesting and hugely motivating, so let’s get to it!
