    My husband's friend passed a way. She fought with all she had. I don't know how her family will go on without her. It's funny how as a kid you can't wait to get older.

    Yesterday I worked out for 70 minutes on the 'Iron' circuit - a twelve station weight machine workout. That was 3 sets at each station using increasing poundage. I was beat, tired, sweaty.

    We all have them in our lives. You know them. They are the people who TELL you that you need to lose weight, Encourage you to exercise, then FEED you all the wrong kinds of things. Ugh!
