FED UP

May 9, 2014

While checking emails today I ran across one that I thought was just spam. Upon closer inspection I had run upon a rare gem. It was an email advertising a movie called FED UP.

Mission Accomplished

April 18, 2014

March, 30, 2014 marked the end of my 28 day journey on the Fast Metabolism Diet. I lost a total of 7 pounds and while that might not seem significant to most it made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and the way my clothes fit. The more you weigh the more you […]

Is Biometric testing really so bad?

January 24, 2014

Biometric testing really so bad? Wellness is the new buzzword floating around many companies these days. The cost of health insurance is steadily rising with astronomical deductibles which is why my employer has jumped on the health and wellness bandwagon like so many other companies of late.  Wellness is the latest company trend. As it […]
