Young, Vain, and Ignorant.
Good morning readers! This is a deep one, so right into it.. Between the ages of 16 and 22 my physical appearance occupied about 87% of my mental capacity on a daily basis.

Good Morning Class… Finding workout videos online is a tricky thing. I have personally been an avid youtube-fitness-video consumer for nine years, and I have to say that people have really picked up on this niche.

Good morning! It is currently five degrees here in beautiful New England, with a high of nine and a wind chill of -25.

Mini Pilates Ball and the Fa-la-la-la Llama
Hello there, readers! I am not terribly fond of the cold. In fact, I elaborated on it in both of these posts not too long ago. I’m actually a really bad New Englander; I don’t like skiing, sledding, and I prefer margaritas over hot chocolate. What I do love? Holidays. The decorations are going up. So,Continue reading “Mini Pilates Ball and the Fa-la-la-la Llama”
