Stop blaming. Start fixing.

There it was, black and white. The numbers I told myself I'd never see again. EVER. 201 I told myself I'd never see any number over 200 again (I also said that at 180 and 190 BTW). I should have recognized the signs and listened ... Read more

New Year's was a couple weeks ago. Already, the gym is a little less crowded. Resolutions don't have enough... resolve for many people. I have to admit, I'm happy that I'm not getting bumped from my favorite classes and don't have to wait on que... Read more
