I’ve worked out every day of 2021. I haven’t overdone it, which is something I’ve always struggled with resulting in injury. I do a minimum of 10 minutes a day, 3 times a week for over an hour. Clothes fit bitter, and most importantly I’m proud of myself.

That kind of consistency is incredible! You should be proud for having the drive to keep this a priority!
