Okay, so I know SP folks are opinionated so I need someone to let me know what they think. Since the weather has been nice in Michigan we have had all kinds of folks out who don't look like they exercise much when I'm out running. I totally fe... Read more

Tuesday, March 13, 2012      2 comments

Sunday, February 26, 2012      4 comments

First I want to start out with my very proud moment from this morning - I did my workout video in front of my husband. That is HUGE for me. I used to always make him leave the room. This was my realization that I am confident that I am doing ... Read more
