What a difference a year makes.

What a difference a year makes. One year ago, today, I was in surgery number 6. Today I am back squatting 100lbs. There are many things I am reflecting upon today; how much this year has taught me, changed me, and tested my strength. But to save you from reading a...

Start right now. Avoid REGRET.

This week an “on this day” popped up on my Facebook from six years ago…www.endosupport.blogspot.com. My old blog, just shy of 10 posts. I gave up, planned to take time off and never wrote again. I lacked dedication and patience. I still do at times now. I have not...
