This is something I've been wondering for some time... I can't make it to the gym every day as some days I have to work late, but I try my best to fit in some exercise at least 3 times a week. The gym sessions normally last 2 to 3 hours because ... Read more

But I still went to work. I thought I'd squeeze in some workout time after work but I wasn't feeling too good in the afternoon so I skipped the gym. There were no parking spots available anyway. Somehow, this week everyone wanted to go to the... Read more
