BRENNI71's SparkPeople Blog BRENNI71's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community sluggishly trudging back to spark so, went on a trip in August and was so happy. Stayed on track and even lost weight!! came back to a broken computer.... left for a few weeks and for some reason, couldn't be bothered with resetting my forgotten password on spark. trying to see through the cloudy haze of fast food/junk food vision I've developed since slowly slipping alll the way back into my old habits...

Mon, 2 Jul 2012 12:45:36 EST pointless blogging Just thought I would blog for a minute. Trying to do all the parts and so many times I see journal writing as a recommendation.
