Getting Over The Fear Of Exercise – #TheStruggleIsReal

Anyone that knows me is aware that I do NOT like to exercise. In fact I often jokingly tell people that sweating is against my religion in attempt to avoid it.  You see, I am that girl that would rather diet than exercise any day of the week, which I fully admit is a terrible
