Son threw his back out yesterday and I have been busy trying to be super mom - actually kind of nice - at 20 he seldom wants to depend on me for anything - but I also was trying to be super housekeeper, super cook and super gardner - rushing mor... Read more

The biggest impression I received was how real and motivated Chris is. The E-bay thing was surreal and if anyone deserves success Chris does. I'm not sure I can ever be as dedicated to a goal as he was but baby steps should take me far based o... Read more

The plan is 1 1/2 hours cardio on Mon, Wed and Fri - I just couldn't do it today - Knew it going in - so at least I did 7 spurts in my hour instead of 6 and added one extra leg machine. Think I will try 1 hour doing yard work tomorrow instead o... Read more

Ok, I've been tracking my food and working out three times a week at the Y - 2 hours each time - 1 hour cardio and 1 hour weights. Faithfully since last June. As normal my weight came off slowly but it came off - only 13 pounds but it was so... Read more

Too many people confine their exercise to jumping to conclusions, running up bills, stretching the truth, bending over backward, lying down on the job, sidestepping responsibility and pushing their luck. ~Anonymous I'm thinking the gym is... Read more
