Falling Off…and Getting Back On

My name is Erin, I'm a Fit Bottomed Girl, and I've officially fallen off the workout wagon. While Jenn and I are usually eerily similar, as I sit and write this post, I feel like we couldn’t be more different. Jenn has been busy running like a fiend to prepare for her half marathon, and I know …
