I have a particularly favorite quote I need to apply to my life more often. To paraphrase, it says "to know is not enough, you must apply". As I sit in front of the monitor, dressed in my workout clothes, I can see the gym across the stree... Read more

How's this for motivation: there's too much of me to love. I have to laugh out loud as I'm typing because it's true. There's too much and it's too uncomfortable and I have aches and pains because of it. I'm sick and tired and over it. Once ... Read more
