Yoga is scheduled for tonight. Looking forward to it, but I hope I can figure out a way not to have my hands and wrists hurt again this week. Hopefully we'll do a different workout that doesn't stress them so much. I have to stay positive so I c... Read more

Time to Get Serious
Monday, August 10, 2009      3 comments

I've had several weeks of slacking. Now it is time to get serious. I feel I have the exercise portion of this lifestyle down fairly well. Now I need to really focus on changing my eating. While I make good choices a lot of times there are just t... Read more

I've recently injured my ankle somehow. Even though it is not bad, I am under doctor's orders to take it easy for another couple of weeks. This has made it hard for me to stay focused on my eating. Today I decided I have to take control and be d... Read more
