I Don’t Like Processed Sugar

I'm not insane. I promise. But...I don't like sugar that much. Well...not entirely true. I do enjoy sugar. Who doesn't? But I honestly don't like it that much. Kind of? Let me explain.

Stiff Backs and Yoga

Ouch. That about sums up a stiff back. For something we think we don't use too much, a stiff back sure can throw a wrench in your day, week, month...year.
