    I Wanna Feel Good Again!

    There was a time in my life when I was in fine shape.  I had dance rehearsals twice a day, played tennis, lifted weights, and I felt awesome!  Then I went to college and for some reason I dropped all those GOOD habits and picked up a lot of BAD ones.  (ie: drinking...

    Getting Lost In Order To Getting Fit.

    One thing I find useful is, when out jogging, have no set path and go down streets I have never been down before, or am not familiar with... I need to have music keeping a beat. I may not know the distance I ran, the music allows me to keep a sense of how long I've been running.
