Taylor: i had regular access to everything. there were multiple decks of cards, multiple games.. everybody liked the same shows..

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Karina: Yes. For me, I was just being lazy. I wasn't exercising and I was eating more than normal. I was one week postpartum when I was locked up.
Taylor: well heck no the food was hard to get down.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
