I went to the ER this past Wednesday because of some pain/tightne... Read more

Why I Continued With Sparkcoach
A few of my SP friends have asked what I thought of my free 7 day trial of Sparkcoach, so figured I should just blog about it. I had seen links about it for a few months and briefly thought about it before, but never seriously. What... Read more
Ugh....Butt kicked by Camelback!

Is life getting crazier or is it just me? Analyzing my downfall.
I just realized something. Before June and the summer whirlwind hit, I was often times exceeding my goal of exercising 500 minutes/month. Since then, it has gone downhill faster than my brother's out of control box car when he was little. (Fortu... Read more
