I checked out the team fitness minutes today and guess what? You are in the top five this week!!!!

A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

I like the way you are making your dreams into reality - one step at a time!

That is such a healing story about your cat rescue -- love it. Would make a great blog . . . . !! We can rescue ourselves and reassure ourselves and stop eating compulsively from a place of fear and scarcity.
