There was a medicine ball on my chest. A big, heavy, invisible medicine ball plunked onto my chest by an imaginary personal trainer. Funny feeling.

  2. I don't normally do memoirs because real people writing about their real stuff tends to bore me to tears ... but I may have to make the exception for this!

  6. The Instagram F56 made me laugh until I figured that maybe it wasn't meant sarcastically. I definitely feel like I'm going to die whenever I go exercising in any way. I really like the BB as well so I might have to check this one out :) Thanks for hosting and for sharing!

  9. I love the beginning and the 56 made me laugh a bit because that's how I frequently feel on bike reads though I'm not sure if the 56 was serious or joking.

So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new?
