    I love the sweater…and the boots! It’s becoming increasingly evident that I need a generous benefactor.

    Whenever I need a boost I peruse the Athelta and Title 9 catalogs. I love all their clothes and the inspiring stories about the models. I’d probably add a Bosu ball to the list above and an IPod Shuffle … might seem obvious but the shuffle is so light you can wear it even when doing intense exercises like jumping, etc…
