Running Amok for Weight Loss

Sally was very frustrated.  She had been running for about two solid months now and she had dropped six inches off her waist and thighs, but now she was stuck.  Her feet were sore and swollen.  Her back had been hurting sharply since her 5K run yesterday and the side of her hip was painful and tight.  Her weight loss that was quite rapid at first had begun to slow to a grinding halt with only half a pound weight[…]

Bill and Ted were two young bucks that loved hitting the gym on a weekly basis.  They loved the feel of feeling their biceps burn from a good set of curls and their pecs flair up with blood from a couple sets of 10 on the bench.  But overall they weren’t satisfied with their overall size.  They’ve been hitting the gym steadily for several months in a row now and they’d gotten a little shape to their bodies, but not[…]
