    I don't know about you, but even though I am not afraid of being mugged my a chocolate cake with vanilla icing (is this profiling?), this effing food thing is tough. I does not care how fit you are, or what you do; when you consume more calories than...

  • Experiencing the Treadmill

    One cold afternoon as the wind drifted the snow outside, three dozen of us lined up on our treadmills beneath four large flat screen TVs. It was like a scene out of Clockwork Orange. As the miles wore on, Ellen, Olivia from Law and Order, Pat Summera...
