Hmmmm…Now That’s A Habit!

I recently read The Power of Habits by Charles Duhigg and it is definitely a book I have easily recommended to all of my friends.

Snap, Crackle, Pop My Back!

All my life . . . (in my KC and Jojo voice) . . . my back has been all jacked up. I was a year round athlete by the time I was in fourth grade and despite my mother’s wishes that I’d be some sort of dolled up princess person, I was a tom-boy. Rebellion at its finest. Many…
