I've started taking Raspberry Ketones and I figure if Dr. Oz says that they will help reduce fat, then I've got nothing to lose by trying them (except for some money & hopefully poundage). Today is day 2 of taking the supplement. I've got 6 mo... Read more

Just did 30 minutes of cardio and day 2 of bootcamp and I cannot believe how exhausted I am! Man, I hope I have more energy tomorrow. Maybe I didn't consume enough carbs today? I don't know what it was, but it felt like I had lead in my runni... Read more

Spent Spring Break at Disneyland. The land of Churros, Carmel Corn (in California Adventure), Gumbo in a bread bowl, and Pizza Planet. I tried to plan ahead. Everyday I loaded my purse with trailmix and bottled water (which was usually gone b... Read more

Wow. I feel like I'm working my butt off and the results just seem to be lacking. I can tell my clothes are getting looser, but the scale isn't moving at the pace I'd would like it to. I'm just going to keep pushing everyday and hope that the... Read more

February was a bust. I did everything all wrong. No exercising, baked cookies, bought GirlScout cookies (still have 2 boxes that are 1/2 full), ate pizza, mexican food, anything/everything that was in sight pretty much. Monday, March 2nd, I b... Read more
