Woman Goes To Gym For 100 Days Straight: Motivates The World
“This is MY year!” is a statement that can be heard at the beginning of each new year by those who want to make a change in their lives with New Year’s resolutions, goals and challenges.
But as one woman has proven, you can change your life from the inside and outside by being consistent.
