    The end of February brings a whole new world for me. March begins my cut and new fitness program. It’s also means that the end of winter is (nearly) upon us.

This weekend includes a trip to Costco to stock up on everything I’ll need for the next few weeks. FITNESS Two fitness favorites for the month of February, the first is my new Blender Bottle GoStak that’s been perfect for carrying snacks and supplements to…
