There is no can't!
It has occurred tome that there is no such thing as can't! What I mean whn I say can't is, I don't want to or I won't. For months I kept saying "I can't get motivated to exercise right", "I can't stop eating at night"' what I really should have ... Read more

Why are Mondays so hard??
Monday morning is my worst morning! I hate getting out of bed when the alarm goes off, and briefly think, "I need a day off". In actuality I could have had an off day, since I went seven days last week, but I knew that extra sleep would'nt make ... Read more
