Sticking to my schedule

I did not want to workout today. But I’m sticking to my MWF goal to truly see how it affects me in a month with my TBI. I did a great tread bootcamp, it was fun and kicked my ass and made me push and run faster than normal with some short intervals. I’m determined […]

I did it!

I got my permit today! I studied and I passed the test. I got my permit at 41 years old 🤣. I am so excited, but I am also so aware. Like I know I can’t see well at night with my glasses even so I won’t drive at night. I also know I won’t […]
