Journey Program ~ March 31st 2011
March 31st 2011 I like to work all my days together and then enjoy 5 days off, it suits my lifestyle and gives me the time to teach my fitness classes.

So I’m hoping by venting here on tumblr I’ll be less likely to talk...
Journey Program ~ March 30th 2011
March 30th 2011 Thank God I have today off to get my bearings before working with my young orientee again.

A deer in the headlights does not come close to describing this. More...

Knee patients need patience: injuries to these joints take weeks to heal. … Weeks can go by before knees regain their full function, and patients are obliged to re-learn how to walk.
