I'm really hesitant to record this, for fear I won't carry through with it. Right now, though, it seems appropriate to be accountable here. Yesterday, Day 2, I exercised twice: one with Nicole's video, which was challenging as always. I als... Read more

I've had trouble adding another blog here. Within two hours of my last one, my mother died, and I've had this odd feeling I wanted to leave it up for a while, as though there was a tiny piece of my mother still there. Kind of foolish, but I don'... Read more
