It can be tedious to enter each individually especially when you start getting to reps and sets (at least for me).

Now to try and figure out how to deal with them and stay strong. I found a couple articles on Sparkpeople with ideas but they don't necessarily fit my particular situation.

She visited and stayed night last night. I slept so good. Got a whole eight hours. I woke up feeling great!
