How do you know when it’s time for a change?

Change is hard and it is scary. But it can also be exhilarating. I got to thinking about this as I change my exercise rotation. I’ve had a very successful run at doing barre (ballet-type) exercises. I think it’s time for a change though and so I’ve been doing P90X3. (Which stands for Power 90 […]
