The Case of the Abandoned Elliptical
I was so excited when I'd gotten my new elliptical a couple of years ago. However, I never bonded with it; the motion isn't comfortable for me and I don't like it.

Here Comes the Detox Illness (why do I put myself through this?)
Even though I don't drink a lot of coffee (a small mug a day and no other caffeinated beverages), I get flu-like symptoms (including awful headache) for a few weeks (yes, weeks!) when I detox from caffeine. I've tried different methods like wea... Read more
