With fiendish, nefarious excitement, I am attacking my laptop keyboard like my coffee […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
If I could make a difference and reach out to one population, I would encourage our young girls to be physically strong.

It isn’t popular, but then again, I didn’t choose a popular profession with the family.

A candidate for hip replacement surgery is […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
There I was, just catching up with Glamour Magazine as I jogged on the treadmill…Open a page and see models posing inside their fridge. Weird? Absolutely. Funny? Kinda. Something worth trying? OF COURSE! So, here’s my #Fridging photo. Me, after my workout, posing in front of my open refrigerator. Hair flying out of place, glasses missing, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
