Really to be honest, I don’t have the time to dedicate to those types of long workouts anymore. I eat healthy food and do more of listening to my body, and I am better in tuned with it. I really want women to embrace their own body shapes and exercise and eat right for health! If you are struggling with what the media is tell you, then I just want you to free yourself from that!
