It's a two-fer! WooHoo! Fitness Opportunity... Today is my Friday off, so we took advantage of that fact, by going to the gym and doing our first ActivTrax workout to get started. I got curious how far the gym is from our home, so I used ... Read more

I firmly believe we must look back, not to dwell on the past, but to learn from it, so we can move forward. So, here's my look back, so I can look forward again. Last week I did crap-all for fitness and ate far beyond a reasonable range. I ... Read more

New for me, at least. I've popped open a Notepad, and will be jotting down notes during the day as they come to me. Too often, I have a thought, think 'I should blog that' then get distracted and forget, and never come back to it. My workd... Read more
