I have recently been catching up on my blog post reading, and came across multiple writings on resolutions for the New Year.  Resolutions are not really my thing as I always have this image of dusty treadmills and weight benches used as clothing hangers!  Anyone who knows me realizes I could stand to loose about(…)
