  • In January 2011, I was laid off from a job that I had been with for eight years.  I was employed as an online personal trainer for a diet web site. The company was a complete financial mess and laid off a large number of employees. Not only did this news come just after Christmas, […]

  • Happy Valentine’s Day Guiltless Meal Plan

    By Raphael | In Motivation, Nutrition | on February 13, 2012
