Working Through the Hurt, Rest, Slacking on Nutrition, and a Partner

Pain. That is what I felt. Being an ex-athlete, I’ve grown accustomed to working through pain. It’s almost a “must” in my circle. Or, it was… I’ve recently been busting my butt to get to my goal. By that I mean that I’ve been hitting the exercise a little harder than usual and that has [...]
