    wow, lady, you have some AMAZING workouts to do here on this blog of yours. However, what first caught my attention was the Happy Gal title. It was great to see a positive emotion in a title, It made want to read more. And when I did I realised you were really a person of the positive mindset and not one who is woe is me and doom and gloom like so many of the other WL blogs around.
    Keep up the great work
