I decided to do the strength training exercises listed in myFitness page. That may have been a big mistake. I nearly hurt myself (or perhaps I did and will know tomorrow) and I feel completely demoralized right now. I am a useless piece of bl... Read more

I was hungry. No, scratch that. I was starving! We went into town late, things didn't go according to plan, and everywhere I looked there was yummy, good, fast stuff. I grabbed a bag of Wal-Mart's Indulgent trail mix. Oh, that's good stuff.... Read more
