I was on track and happy with my weight. And then this winter hit. I live in the Midwest, and we got record snow this year. It's been difficult to travel, so getting to the gym hasn't really happened. I gained a lot of weight. It's normal ... Read more

So I've been really hitting the gym...and watching what I eat, but I've seen very little progress thus far. I don't have a scale...but I really feel as if it's not moving. I am contemplating doing some detox stuff (juicing and baths) ; but I th... Read more

Derby practice was great...kind of a relaxed and strategy based, but this will help ease me back into it. Day 5: Woke up early and jogged a mile in the rain. It was refreshing. I may go to the gym later if the weather doesn't clear up, ... Read more

Well...Roller derby really did help me get to a place where I was comfortable in my own skin. I'm still much healthier and toned since my initial goals, but this fall I fell off the healthy wagon. I finally graduated college and got a "real" job... Read more
