Working Out, Failing, Working Out Again

Over the last year I’ve been failing at my workout goals. I started going to Jazzercise about 6 years ago and was super regular, going at least 4 or 5 times a week if not 7. And then on top of that, walking and hiking with the family. I’m not sure what happened this last year,…
