I've had so many thoughts about my fitness/health and spark people over the last few weeks. I decided that they should probably be put down onto paper. I'm not even sure that I can organize them into anything cohesive, but I'll try. I w... Read more

I've not been doing my stretching or strength training lately. Today, I really could tell. My body was stiff. I can no longer touch my toes. My muscles are getting flabby. So today I set a new goal of ST twice a week. I think that ca... Read more

Well, for anyone wondering, I'm all recovered from my surgery. I was sidelined physically for a week, and emotionally for longer than that. The emotional part is keeping me from recovering in the food/fitness department. I keep tel... Read more
