I got up this morning and swam 30 min bf I was at work at 7:30. It was fun but I find that I'd much rather swim on the weekend when I don't have to watch the clock, rush and deal w/traffic. The trick to this challenge is going to be next week wh... Read more

It is uncomfortable for me when people look at me and say how "tiny" I am. I guess compared to so many overweight people, I am. However, by labeling me special, they are saying, "but I could never do that." It discounts all my work and well....w... Read more
