The inner wild woman wants out........


Written  by Linda Gauthier

  These tough lookin chicks are the       
Biker Chicks
Biker Chicks

So if you are a biker chick at heart, no matter what your age, you still retain those inner urges.  Rockin music, greasy food and bad boys that steal your heart.  Well, this old biker chick feels like Rockin music, and having a good time with some bar food, beer and her bad boy, so how do I do this and remain on my diet?  I can't exactly deny myself all pleasures in life for the pursuit of a healthy body, can I?  Well maybe I could, but the "Biker Chick" won't be happy, so I am letting the wild woman out for the weekend, but she has only a day pass, not a week, or a month of freedom.  This is, as I see it, a prep course for the rest of my life.  The biker chick had her way for many years, and I have kept her contained for the past 6 months, so I am allowing her a day pass and no guilt, but I am also doing it in a healthy way.
