Boosting Cardio & Building Strength, the Pretty Muddy way!

Hey there pretty ladies! We’re all a few weeks into the new year, which means we should all be settled into our routines and over the post-holiday blues. I love to use this time of year to concentrate on my health and treating my body well. Not because I made some big elaborate New Year’s…

Starting the New Year Off Right

As we reach the start of 2013, it’s a chance for new beginnings, a shot at making 2013 even better than 2012 was. Every year, we commit ourselves to doing something differently, to making a change, to improving our lives. We’re talking about New Year’s Resolutions. We all make them, but unfortunately, many of us…
