How Much Do You Want It? Results that is.

Amy Stopelgo walked away from the spa slightly more perturbed than she had entered. It wasn’t her manicure or full body massage that was bothering her though. Something was bugging her and she just couldn’t shake that nagging feeling that she’d experienced so many times before.  She just couldn’t believe she’d been weight training for weeks now with minimal progress.  It was always so quick before.  She’d start up a new program, suffer through the weights, the dieting and get[…]
