So today I forgot my gym bag and I typically hit the gym either before or after my TOPS meeting. I was thinking you know you are tired and you have been doing a lot. You can afford to take the day off. I also have about an hour of reading to ... Read more

Tuesday, December 08, 2015      9 comments

Many of my teams challenges seem to be promoting more sleep which I understand is important for weight loss. However I find it ironic that keep running across articles that promote getting up early to exercise. I have always struggled to get ... Read more
