So fitting fitness in my life for just that one hour a day is also what I consider 'me time', and I love it. There are 86,400 seconds in a day, so there's no excuse to say you don't have time to exercise. There are also 24-hour gyms."

Lane 8 - The Observer posts "Speedo shame.  Although I would not say I was an easily embarrassed kid, I got more than red in the face when in grade school, I was shown the suit I was to wear on swim team. It had a great color, a cool logo, but not enough material. It was a Speedo."
