2012 was unequivocally the worst year of my life. While dealing with my tumor removal from December 2011, I lost my job in January. In May, I dropped out of college right before finals, resulting in the failure of all of my classes. At the end o... Read more

I feel like a failure. I know it sounds harsh but it's the truth. I lost 20 pounds three years ago and managed to keep it off for a couple of years, but here I am -- 20 pounds heavier than I was in November. Granted, I had surgery and ... Read more

Things got a little messed up over the weekend, so I had Kenpo X on Sunday and then I went right into Week 2 with Chest and Back. I'm blaming the Boy on this one because I waited for him to get back from Nassau to do Kenpo on Saturday and as so... Read more

I'll admit it. I'm a coward. I have these before pictures that I took on Monday when I started P90X but I don't want to post them because I look fat. Now I look around SP and I see people posting their before pics, men and women who have ... Read more

Oooh, I have been a slacker on my blog! Bad Mandy. To be honest, I have an excuse. We had a full house here at the resort and I barely had time to log on and log my food and exercise, much less blog and participate in forums. I have miss... Read more

I'm tired today. I have been getting my eight hours of sleep in but I don't think the sleep is good sleep since I have a hard time sleeping without my love by my side. My dogs have been sweethearts, cuddling up on the bed with me. Rex was eve... Read more
