Kettlebell Transformation: Kim's Journey to Strength Living with MS

While I feel honored and inspired by everyone I work with, once in a while a special story comes along that really makes me grateful for getting to work in the health field.  I have been lucky to work with a woman named Kimberly Hodge, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 28.  She has written me several inspiring emails about her story that I would like to share below.

This is the second batch I have made in just a few days.  I will not make this for awhile since it's too good and gets eaten way to fast.  First batch of Apple Cinnamon Bread 2nd Batch  Ingredients I used 2 cups         Almond Flour 1/2 cup       Raw Pecans (Ground in to flour) 1 1/2          Organic Green Apple (Peeled and chopped) 1/2            Organic Green Apple (Peeled and sliced for top of bread) 1 cup        Organic Unsweetened Apple Sauce  2             Organic Free
