Winter Time Blues Winter Time Blues Wrestling With Winter: Living With Post Holiday Let-Down Change is good. Change is inevitable. Be the change…blah blah blah. I've written about it.

For the past 57 days I have followed a healthy eating plan, been to the gym practically every day, have lost a significant amount of weight and my physical body feels … [Read more...]
