A Metaphor (or Metaphors be with you.)

Tuesday, March 02, 2010      1 comments

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      1 comments

Every time I looked outside and saw more snow falling, I was always tempted to exercise or do yoga with one of my DVD's or finding something on line. However, I always chose to get in the car unless the streets were just too dangerous. I... Read more

I really shouldn't complain about the snow.

Friday, February 19, 2010      1 comments

Pain and its message

Thursday, February 18, 2010      0 comments

I finally reached the magic number of 125 lbs. and find I don't care nearly as much as I thought I would. Now I will just be very happy to have a goal range of 125-130 and enjoy life. I have always preached that numbers aren't important, it's... Read more
