If you’re currently following a macro tracking diet (aka “iifym”) then you’ve probably run into the issue of how to accurately track alcohol.

The other week I wrote an article with lower body workout to help you all get ready for shorts weather (you can check out the article HERE). But I can’t forget about the other half of you!

Whether you are an employer in a large corporation, run your own small business, or are an employee at an office job, it’s important to have a healthy work environment.
