I signed up for a 5k race for Multiple Sclerosis a couple of weeks ago. My step-mom has MS, so it seemed a no-brainer. However, after I signed up, I looked at the course - yikes! Major hill. But I scoped out some areas around home to work on... Read more

I was reading somewhere on SP that we should reward ourselves for achieving our goals. Of course, makes sense. However, when I only have one goal (losing all my excess pounds), it's hard to keep motivated. SO - I've decided to break it up int... Read more

I've been working in India off and on for a few months. While I would never choose to live here, it has definitely been interesting staying here. One thing that I have noticed, is that sequins, beads and other sparkly things are worn regularly... Read more
