    My brother is a body builder.

    He's making me a workout list, which is sweet. And a diet plan. Hopefully soon I'll be pretty big. Get that summer body before summer ends. Abs and all. This is gonna be hard, but fun.

    I Made the First Step.

    I finally joined a yoga class!!  Now I just need to work out the other 6 days a week... I would really like to join a martial arts class of some kind, I just can't decide exactly what type.  Tae Kwon Do?  Another?  Any advice on the differences?
