You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired. - George Patton, US Army General, 1912 Tue, 13 Sep 2011 11:14:27 EST Our KICK 5 prayer http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=20756x52293x44008217 LACEEJO11 <BR> <BR> KICKERS we had several KICK the 5 BIG OLD FAT BOYS to the curb... this time around, and even more KICKED 2, 3 or 4 pounds to the curb!!
