    good Self care, lipty style 01:15

    Ok, so I get that 75 minutes on the elliptical may not look a whole lot like self care. ;-)

      Such a fabulous feeling...I miss that, and can't wait for that return with my next program (whenever that may be)
      The sleep running feel, the autopilot runs, but the endorphins of them all are unbeatable :-)
