That’s What I Call Will Power

Posted by on May 7, 2012 in Skinny Tips & Quotes, Twinkie | 0 comments

More fun and totally random health related pictures. 1. My husband was given this candy bar for his birthday. He ate three pieces (one row), and had the candy bar sitting on his desk for weeks. I finally took a picture of it, just to show myself what real “Will Power” looks like.   2. I’m still not sure if this is cute or just plain creepy.    3. It’s time to put the coffee down…   4.

Posted by on Dec 6, 2010 in Fitness, Weight Loss | 1 comment

During the Winter months, too many of us dread the snow and wish we had warmer weather.
