I do feel some of my arm workout. I'm also feeling the uncomfortable twinge in my shoulder and I don't know if its from working out or from the stress of work and family. Unfortunately I told my family about the blog, so they read it. And I don't want to vent where they could see and take it personally.
Even people trying to help are interrupting my flow right now. So I know it's not good. I took a mental health day yesterday and of course that just put me way behind for today!
The tattoos are doing well. I'll post pictures of them all healed up when they get there!

Make Friends With Your Body
Name one thing that would definitely make you like your body better.
No, it's not liposuction. It's weight work -- and that boost to your body image happens no matter what size or shape you're in. Strength training doesn't just make you feel stronger, it also makes you feel good about yourself. Even better, you only have to do it a few times a week to get the bod-loving -- and RealAge -- benefits.
Which food can make you happier: an apple or some chocolate?
If you immediately said "Chocolate!" you're right, but (there's always a but) only if you really enjoy it. If a wave of fat-and-calorie guilt washes over you after the last bite, it negates the mood boost that chocolate provides. Sweet solution: Buy chocolate that has at least 70 percent cocoa. It's high in cholesterol-fighting antioxidants, and the flavor is so intense that a little goes a long way.
KEEP RUNNING, KEEP LIFTING!!!
