Yesterday was a spectacular work out day for me. I did another day of the C25K program. I may be slow going on this program, may only be really "jogging" during the run parts (at 250+ lbs, it's a lot to jog) and I may have to repeat several days... Read more

Boy oh Boy am I having a mental downer day. I had weight gain this morning, most likely attributed to water weight, lack of sleep and impending TOM. I know all of this, yet still my mind is in a downward spiral of suckiness. I hate this feeling ... Read more
