Goals for 7/24
Sunday, July 24, 2011      1 comments

Tuesday, January 04, 2011      4 comments

So I finally decided that it is time to get my act together. I looked back on 2010 and realized that I accomplished very little as far as my health goals are concerned. I decided I don't want that to happen this year. So I have decided that I... Read more
