Thought I was really bad as far as eating and exercising (only went running 3 times, and never made it to the gym) But I am down another 5 or so pounds.. guess it wasn't as bad as I thought. Well, back to the Gym today for sure regardless... Keep the Faith! Mon, 9 Jul 2012 08:27:39 EST Heading to VA No exercise today.. unless you consider driving 470 miles exercise....

Took almost an hour to get after being ordered, and it was like a hockey puck, now my stomach is killing me.... Why OH Why do I make choices like that... cause your a picky eater.. that's why.... Just had to get that out there.. <BR> <BR> <em>15</em> <BR> <BR> avoid it if you can.... <link> </link> Thu, 14 Jun 2012 15:34:43 EST
