There’s Something Wrong Here

Something is wrong here, very wrong. We secretly search for a cure for mid-life crisis, yet we despair of finding it. We are alone and lonely. We are isolated from each other. We speak in sound bites on Facebook and Twitter. We love one-up-man-ship, and we live in a What-Can-You-Do-for-Me world. A Better Way This isn’t the best way to get things done.

Hate to Exercise? How does 7 minutes sound?

I have hated exercise all my life, almost always preferring the couch to the coach, so to speak. I’m not overweight (well, 20 pounds, OK?), and I’m pretty healthy except for a little high blood pressure. I am extremely grateful for this good health. I don’t take it for granted.
