Did your January just become mid February? Quit playing around with this stuff.

Decisions, Decisions! January is all about decisions. Goals, resolutions, and changes that bring desired results. While that is good, it can also be much like going on a diet.

An unlikely duo, a bruised ego and a warm heart.

  Last year, I was going to run the LSU lakes 3x a week. Beautiful setting and somehow quite therapeutic. May have done it 3x total. Just didn’t happen. Didn’t set that goal this year. However, I am improving. So far this year I’ve been 2 times. Last week was one of those rare occasions.
