Comment of the Week

“I work full time from home and feel blessed every day. I intersperse microworkouts with work most days. When it’s not raining, I have sanity bike rides after work. It is so glorious to be outside. Life goes in for Mother Earth, she’s in full spring mode here in Chicago. My fav microworkout: walk down 6 flights of stairs, do a plank on the lawn (bunnies everywhere) and sprint up the stairs. Blessings to you!”

Christopher gets it.
