They Fight All The Time

Saturday, March 19, 2011      3 comments

Here I am again. I've had a good week getting back on course. I've stayed within my calorie range. I've drank at least 10 glasses of water every day. Sleep has been a little off due to the time change but, believe me, I've had much less. I'... Read more

Good Day!

Tuesday, January 18, 2011      1 comments

Wow! What a day! I always enjoy an extra day off but it usually causes double work when I go back. Added to the fact that I was out of town three days last week; and it was a busy day. I did come home though and go straight to work out...... Read more

New User Name/New Beginning

Monday, January 17, 2011      4 comments

I had intended to do this at the beginning of the month and then I got sick. I haven't been sick like that in years. Needless to say, it completely wrecked my plans to start strong on the first. That's ok. I can't do anything to change that... Read more

Doing OK

Thursday, August 20, 2009      1 comments

I am doing pretty good this week in spite of the major drama going on around me. I really wanted chocolate a couple of times (because that's my escape of choice) but I ate fruit or popcorn instead. I think the reason I have been able to stay ... Read more
