Mixed Bag

Per usual, I got on a roll, stuff came up, I stopped blogging, and now I'm all motivated again and ready to get this show on the road. So what's different this time? I hit a big milestone. I don't normally start workout programs and do them all the way through - I get bored, [...]

The New Year Bandwagon
