Well, I'm back! I have to admit that I have
not worked out since my last entry. It's
been a week, I know! That last workout
fried me, and on Tuesday, I found this
documentary that has changed my whole
outlook. Here's the documentary:
I watched that video and realized that if

personal frustrations and obstacles
together. I feel empowered by the idea that
I can finally understand what's going on in
my brain and do something about it!
I'll keep you posted here about my progress

out starting tomorrow!
