The Value of a Fresh Start

As usual, there's a lot of tough talk on the internet and Facebook about how New Years resolutions are useless. And I get it, I understand that for many people, resolutions fail year after year after year. Especially big, "unrealistic" resolutions... HOWEVER...

Here's to being more in 2016

2011 has been a big year - I finally accomplished some very far-reaching personal goals, and have been moving slowly but surely forward.   2012 holds a lot of promise I think - and hopefully the same is true for you.   As mentioned in the Challenges vs Resolutions post, I've chosen a particular exercise challenge - and then was further motivated to add the 21 Day Sugar Detox to the mix (one of my hig
