More Truths About Exercise and Losing Bodyfat

Happy New Year. It’s been a couple of years since I wrote the article ‘10 Truths I’ve Learned About Exercise and losing bodyfat’ where I attempted to centralize the advice New Year’s resolution-makers were seeking from me at the time.

Camping close to town I went to the only store to pick up breakfast. Sitting outside eating what I could piece together as a passable breakfast, This big dog, a chocolate Lab, was doing his ‘best sad’ face to get a bite or two from me.
