Beachbody Venture!

Well, I’m stepping in a new direction and taking on a new challenge.For the last few months, I have been working out using a video series called Slim in 6.

Self Confidence

I always say to myself that I should just keep it low profile when it comes to statuses, tweets or even selfie posts on Instagram maybe because someone might put me down and tell me that I’m not good looking.
