The Self-Proclaimed Badass

BadassMindset

Why am I, Jenell Riesner, a complete and total Badass? When we first challenged ourselves to write a post about being a badass, the first thought that popped into my head was, “How am I going to write a blog post about being a badass when half the time I don’t feel like one?”. I […]

What Does it Mean to be Healthy?

BadassMindsetNutrition

Different stages of life have garnered very different answers to this question. I have pursued health for many reasons, depending on the decade, trying different programs, rules, trainers, classes, diets, spiritual healing, and relaxation methods.
