Monday morning and just for kicks I stepped on the scale to see what the full devastation of my week of vacation was. .4 more pounds to bring my grand total to 3.4 pound back from the universe due to my vacation indulgences. Ugh - it is depressi... Read more

I am truly not a fan of Mondays. Even when I didn't work Monday through Friday which I now do I didn't like Mondays. It's just HARD to drag yourself out of bed and get started, when since I am rested from the weekend this should be the easiest d... Read more

Body Gospel ? ? ?
Thursday, June 03, 2010      2 comments

First let me start by saying that I do not like cardio. Of any kind. I struggle to find something that I will do just to get my body moving and get the furnace burning. My body is put together with shorter, strong muscles that are ideally suited... Read more
