Back in the Saddle!

a little sweat never killed anyone :)

This past couple of weeks, I've worked hard to re-form my exercise habit that I had prior to my injury-of-a-freakin-lifetime. Take it from me: if you're in a workout routine currently, DO NOT STOP if you can avoid it! Man alive, it's been difficult to get my mind back into making time for the gym. Case-in-point? On my second back-at-it workout, I moaned and groaned and cursed myself before finally getting into the car to drive to the gym. I Continue Reading
