Please Spay or Neuter

I just received an e-mail which prompts me to depart from the fitness world onto an issue close to my heart. A well-meaning e-mail was written on behalf of an elderly neighbor whose cat just had seven “adorable” kittens. Unfortunately, all that adorability did not help them to be accepted by the ASPCA or other local animal shelters because they are already full of equally adorable kittens. So now there are seven little kitties looking for a home, and I sincerely hope that somebody will just be looking for a cat.

Reset the Body and Mind

On the weekend most people want to just kick back and relax. Instead most are running around doing errands, cleaning the house, food shopping, etc. Your body and mind need downtime other then watching TV or sleeping.
