Mental Health: Opening Up

I’ve blogged before about my depression and how I wouldn’t let it beat me. I’ve had some lovely comments from people who have read that post. But I think it’s time I owned up. It beat me.

The past few months I have been getting worse. Feelings {Read More}

Review: Fitbug Orb

Fitbug Orb Review

Last year I review the Fitbug and really felt it helped in terms of getting me walking more, but it often got in the way and some days I would forget to put it on.
