To Be An Artist

Since I am ahead of my monthly goal for the 100 Workout Challenge, I decided to focus my attention on nutrition this week.  I already know that I’m going out Thursday night and Saturday.   And sometimes I beat myself up over choices. So my attention has to be on good choices when I’m NOT […]

What Makes You Smile?

I wish that everything made me as happy as exercising and working out. Yesterday at the gym, my coach noticed that my sweat formed a big giant smiley face on my backside. How hysterical. This picture makes me laugh every time I think about it.  It’s so appropriate because working out really does make me […]

The 3 Rs of Working Out

I packed my own breakfast and lunch and managed to stay right on track with protein, vegetables, some healthy fat, […]
