  1. Keep up with the posts! In a week my schedule opens up and I start working out again. Wouldn’t mind shedding 20 or 30 pounds.

  2. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. Have you ever considered writing an ebook or guest authoring on
    other sites? I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss
    and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my subscribers would appreciate your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.
