Fitbit Versa: My Winter #Fitspo

Tough Gal 2015. I did it, in body if not mind

The irony of completing this years Tough Gal challenge to close out one of the most difficult weeks I’ve had in recent memory is not lost on me I assure you.  The poignancy of it, the lovely group of women I did the event with…
