So that's why sweat pants have zippers on the legs!
I decided in July, when I came back to Spark after a 6 month hiatus, that I deserved to take care of myself. At that moment, I made a promise to myself to run in a 5K. I walked in my first one on August, ran in one in September and then again ... Read more

Goal Setting = Soul Bearing. I'd rather be naked.
So I started working on goal setting & vision poster today. I started out thinking, this will be a cinch. You see, I am a real go(al) getter. If my boss gives me a goal, I will NOT let her down. I am really big on the whole "integrity" thing... Read more
