Tuesday, March 03, 2015      4 comments

Exercising is paying off

Sunday, February 15, 2015      12 comments

Despite the 1/2 pound weight gain last week my waist and hip measurements were down yesterday by 1/4" each. These are the only two I track so I'm assuming other areas went down as well. Going to the gym is paying off. I'm toning and tighte... Read more
