I Hate Weights
Saturday, July 29, 2017      16 comments

If you've been my friend for a while you know I despise weights. White hot burning heat type hatred for weights. They're boring. I have to pay attention to a video or to counting. I find a weight workout boring as dirt. And I sweat. Boring AND s... Read more

After much discussion and figuring things out, hubby and I have decided to do this together. Always in the past we kept our weight / exercise efforts separate. Sometimes one of us would be on the kick when the other wasn't. Or we'd agree to be b... Read more
