FOWO

Do you have FOWO?  Pronounced like FOMO but sounds like FO-WHOA! FEAR OF WORKING OUT! It's a thing. I know for certain that gym environments can be intimidating.  More than ever before, thanks to the pandemic, people are freaked out.

Push past the plateau

 The scorching Texas temperature is a ceaseless reminder.  Texans keep fingers crossed that the extreme heat will plateau then quickly nose dive back down into the mid 90's.

Scale-A-Non

Hi, My name is Angi and I WAS a scale -a-hlolic! I weighed myself as much as 8 times a day or more!  Naturally, I hid this nasty little addiction from my husband and friends. After all, why did they need to know that a 5 to 7 pound flux on the scale was driving… Continue reading Scale-A-Non
