Drop by our site often to read a little, offer a comment or two and tell us what…
Last week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Bob Harper. If you live in a box and don’t know who Bob Harper is, he’s one of the lead trainers on The Biggest Loser TV show. When Bob first began his career in personal training, he had no idea it would take off in such a huge way. Although Bob is a big TV star now, he really… Continue

I won't be here tomorrow or Saturday. I'll be in Indianapolis at the Woman of Faith gathering. I can't wait. I'm going with my best friend and have been looking forward to this for a long time.
I need a break... we all do. America, we are all about the dream, materialism and go go go. Women were created to rest. Do we? Not many of us do... well that is, some of us rest too much and coin our own destiny as couch potatoes and others of us run so much that we are unable to slow down for… Continue

This more than likely caused you to toss… Continue

During the past 10 months I have tried and failed P90X a couple of times.
Each time before I stopped I was doing really well, until I got sick, or something else would happen that prevented me from working out for a while, and then I just couldn’t get back into it.

We all have weaknesses, encompassing myriad aspects of our lives, be it health and fitness challenges, personal development and growth issues, or career and relationship struggles. And then there are food weaknesses. For me, I have a soft spot for salty snacks, like potato chips. I have also been also known to power down copious amounts of… Continue
