No Regrets-Spiritually Flabbiness

outsourcing won't work  I hear it all of the time-- I don't have time. I don't like to sweat. I just really don't enjoy it. My favorite spin teacher left.  I start strong, but don't have the motivation to keep going!  In summary: people find excuses not to exercise. ...

 In the Bible, the number 40 is mentioned 146X in scripture, or 149 depending on the translation. The number generally symbolizes a period of testing, trial and then, finally, victory! Through hardships lasting 40 days like when Jesus was in the wilderness or 40 years...
