My Fitness Tracker is The Devil

Hey, you guys! Quick confession: I’m one of those people who used to have/still struggles with/occasionally kicks the ass of an eating disorder.

So, readers, friends, family, mortal enemies… head on over to Brews and Views  to learn a little bit more about yours truly.   PS–The semester is over and I’m […]
