Ok, so I hopped on up for my walk this morning about 5AM. Sandi-the-dog was all pumped up to go when I grabbed the leash. She's fat too (and getting fatter) and she used to accompany me on my morning walks. I felt like I was keeping a dece... Read more

Well ... let's just say it hasn't been a good year weight-wise. I recall when I was having great success ... most every morning I would go out first thing and walk/run a little over four miles. I can still recall my legs being sore the fir... Read more

I'm needing some new jeans for work. I bought some a little over a year ago and I like them but -- fading a good bit from all the washing. Anyway - they're $27 -- plus $8 shipping + $2 tax. And if you spend over $50 shipping is free -- ... Read more
