Train Like There's No Finish Line
Wednesday -- April 3, 2013
Train Like There's No Finish Line If you're like every other person in the world you've had that one moment where you look in the mirror and wish you were more in shape. Of course we're our own worst critic :) Well this summer I'm going to look in the mirror and feel proud that all my hard work has paid off! I'm not just working out for summer... I'm working out for me. There is no finish line when it comes to staying healthy.

Having a visual reminder to stay fit is great for motivation. I found some great wallpapers at both for your computer or your cellphone wallpaper. I have one set for my work computer and another one set for my cell phone. Now there's no excuses!

Face the FACTS
Fitbit Aria Wi-fi Smart Scale
I've wanted the Fitbit Aria Wi-fi Smart Scale since I got the Fitbit almost a year ago. At first I told myself I needed to work out continuously for one month then I could get the scale as a reward... that didn't quite workout :) I finally caved and bought the scale last month. Amazingly since I've had it I've worked out continuously! I guess I really just needed to see the numbers as a daily reminder to stay fit. The scale not only looks slick, it uploads my weight automatically to my account online so I can track my weight and body fat.

Love Hate POETRY
Here's a special poetry contribution I'd like to share:

Train 266 Limited
- By Nicole Woodson -
The foreboding movement through the litter speckled overgrown blur of dimming sunlight.
Droplet trails forming on the ever darkening glass, that is slowly revealing a pale face.
A face that seems un-recognizable.
Torn, ravaged, and worried.
The color is melting away as fast as the sinking daylight.
The ghostly apparition in the glass becomes more and more defined...
The man made propelling hunk of steel carries both I and the figure in the glass, hurling us through the world un-aware of the next step.
I envy the creature in the glass...
she will remain on the forward bound motion, as for myself...
I will be stepping off into uncertainty.
