i hated p90x

April 26, 2010

Yup… hated it. I know, I know, in the first month post I was all “Woo Hoo!  Look at me!” Month two demonstrated how skilled I am in the art of justification, regardless of reason. Now month three is done and I appreciate your kindness in letting me just quietly sweep it under the rug. There [...]

February 10, 2010

That’s how my friend (and now fellow blogger) Lisa said it feels when you make your first post.  Putting it all out for everyone to see.  She let me try it out by posting on her blog, so I guess this isn’t really my “first” post… but hell, I hope you’re smart enough to understand [...]
