I purchased the new Total Body Sculpting dvd; I wish I had it this morning. The weightlifting instructor called in sick so we didn't have class. Luckily I had my mp3 player so I walked on the dreaded treadmill. The only enjoyable part was tha... Read more

I say the Message Board Hot Topcs - "What was your proudest moment today?" It actually had nothing to do with me. I watched the Inauguration Ceremony today and marveled how the country shows such unity on this day. It made me proud to be an A... Read more
