Joined Weight Watchers and started today. The quick start is not designed for someone who didn't go grocery shopping in preparation, but I made it through the day. Spent my indulgence points on bread, butter, and a glass of wine. Tomorrow will b... Read more

I made it to day 6 of 30 day shred. My doctor advised me to take a week off. Seems I've injured myself and may end up with tendonitis of my elbow or "golfer's elbow." After a week, if it still hurts, I'm supposed to do some stretches. The doctor... Read more

I just did the first day, level one, of 30 day shred. Half an hour later, my face is still red. Good thing she was telling me no breaks, or I might have paused. I've been having some sinus problems and afterward I went through about half a roll ... Read more

Okay... so I've had my home gym for about a month now, and I'm sad to say that I haven't set it up yet. The good news is that I've still been getting my exercise in regularly by doing other home improvements... like cleaning and organizing and u... Read more
