Last night I found out that Crosby Stills and Nash give bad advice….(that’s all I’m gonna say)


I got my “Leslie Sansone: Walk Away the Pounds –Get Up and Get Started video tape yesterday. Last night I put it in the VCR and I made it through the entire 18 minutes of the workout. It was exactly like going for a mile. I rewound it and did it again. So that makes 2 miles. I’m gonna do that everyday. Soon enough I’ll rid myself of this “fat –ass” self-esteem problem. My butt, thighs and calves are sore today. As well as my upper shoulders. This is a good sign. He does nice things for me, if I get past the immediate reaction…


I ordered Shawna Kenney’s book and its not available for 3 to 6 months. Story of my life…


I finally saw “Moulin Rouge” on Saturday night. I’m glad I made it past the first horrible 15 minutes. I was thinking to myself “this sucks” and then once the love story started….I was all happy inside. *shrugs*


I finished reading “Swimming Sweet Arrow” by Maureen Gibbon last night. I think all girls should read this book. It was …I can’t even explain it. It was a quick easy read, but I think things about that book will stay with me for a very very long time.

I just saw this quiz thingie on synergy’s diary…

How do you cool your skin after the warmest touch
How do you slow your blood after the body rush
How do you feel your soul after you've found a friend
How do you teach your heart it's a crime to fall in love again
Maybe you might have
Some advice to give
On how to be
