My rib cage feels like it's suffocating me, like I can't breathe. My sternum hurts and my lower back hurts and my rib cage hurts and I just don't feel well. Is it RA or something else?... Read more
Well, Wednesdays are typically my weigh-in day but I've joined this new challenge and we're supposed to weigh-in on Mondays so what to do, what to do? I weighed in this morning but was the same weight as last Wednesday so I guess I don't have t... Read more
I wasn't going to weigh in today because I knew I gained but I did and I only gained half a pound from last week so that's not too bad since I've been eating really badly and not exercising.
But, it's time to get back on track. Foodwise, f... Read more

I'm ready for Christmas but...
Boy am I ever sore. I just spent the last 2 hours decorating the house for Christmas. But my arms and legs are killing me.

Overall, I lost 3.2 pounds for the month but this week has been bad. I haven't done any real exercise since Monday because my left knee is killing me and it seems when this happens, I tend to eat more, too so I've been eating too much and not e... Read more
I'm weighing in early today instead of on Wednesday because I'm going out to dinner tonight with friends from work. I know that's sort of cheating but I don't care. Don't worry, I won't go wild. I just want to eat and not worry about the scal... Read more
Safe and Fit at 50 (even though I'm not 50 yet)
After not being able to exercise at all yesterday, I did this DVD this morning. It's a really good low-impact cardio and strength-training DVD and one of things that I like best about it is that the ab work and strength-training portion is most... Read more
