Hello and happy Sunday! How’s the weather where you’re at? We’ve had some very cold temperatures and some additional snow, which we definitely didn’t need. Today is day 14 of the 75 Hard program and I am really amazed that I’m still sticking with it.

Wow, it’s the last day of January 2021, guys! Here in Iowa, we are once again dealing with more snow. It’s been a really snowy winter.
