No Diet Pepsi, Day 1
...and no headaches. Odd. I'm not complaining, but I was expecting to need some sort of pain killers to get through the day. I was also expecting stronger cravings than I had. In fact, I had no cravings. I did drink more tea than normal (an... Read more
Woke up today sore, but not from my work out. I slept wrong and my neck has a kink in it. Still does! When I got home from work, my daughter reminded me that we had a conference at her school at 6:00 (it was 5:56!). Luckily it was a student-... Read more

Well, I did it! I opened my big mouth and told all the guys at work that on April 4th, I would be able to do 100 push ups. THEN, I challenged them to try to match or beat me! AND I dragged my friend (who works there too) into the challenge. ... Read more

Stayed in my calorie range t... Read more
