    The boot camp story thickens… stay tuned, but i am O.U.T. I am a current member of a GYM. I’m not sure why I tend to sway from it — maybe because I have to “go” there. They do have classes but only in the daytime (as far as I know — but thanks to you … I’m motivated to check into that)!

    Everything in recipe sounds great except for the olives! LOL.
