Holiday weight gain fears? Consider this:

Food has no power. Perhaps I should expand on that. Food has no power except the power you give it, just like everything and everyone else in life.

Hit it and quit it? Nah

Juicy J is not alone- there are times when we all would like to hit it and quit it. Obviously, who wouldn't? Life has shown me that I'm not the only one who would like to do what I want to do when I want to do it, get the results I desire with whatever … Continue reading Hit it and quit it? Nah

CAN. It is simply a matter of learning the technique and … Continue reading Start with ONE
