According to my trainer and my online coach, I need a LOT more protein and water. It’s not the first time I’ve been told to eat […]

Okay, to be clear, it wasn’t a sex swing. And I never really thought it was, but seeing it hanging there by the window of the gym on a day last week when Kurt and I were working out together did spark my imagination in a few exciting ways, one of which was a gym […]
