Post loads to comments.

Fight Against The Second Law of Thermodynamics

The second law of thermodynamics concerns the transformation of potential energy into heat, or random molecular motion.  It states that the disorder (also known as entropy) in the universe is continuously increasing.  In other words, disorder is more likely then order.  For example it is much more likely that your bedroom will become messy overtime, then that it will spontaneously clean itself up, or that a mountain will crumble instead of build itself higher, order turns to disorder spontaneously, but not vis versa.

Entropy is the measure of the disorder of a system.  When the universe formed, it held all the potential energy it will ever have, it has become progressively more disordered ever since. ("energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it can only undergo conversion"). 

So let's apply this to our biological lives, disorder of our systems is inevitable, as we age entropy begins to take over.  I say fight entropy!  Fight the urge to allow disorder in your life.  Entropy is our biological ticking clocks.  How many people do you know that have become lazier as they get older (I have), less inclined to get off the coach and on the trail, slopes or gym?  This is the natural order, fight entropy!  Fight the urge to allow disorder, don't roll over instead create routines, get stronger and defy your natural tendency.  Be a biological rebel!

    good price on lifting shoes

  2. I just have to say that Anna freakin’ rocks as a trainer. Love her! Kicked my ass today with Gwen but has a great way about her. Fantastic Nooner class :).
    So glad you’re training now! AND, selfishly, I also like it because I get to see you a lot more than before. Rock on sistah!

    GOOD NIGHT!! I have to wait until Sunday to have Anna train me (insert, whimper… lip quiver).
    Agree, love Anna as a trainer. She does a good job and is super attentive to athletes and form/keeping the motivation to keep us going.

    ps… Cherie, on the post, can you tell a big difference with a weight lifting shoe? Good investment?
    And, the shoes on this site, are they all men’s sizes?
