A year ago, I was forcing myself through my last year of college in m... Read more
The craziness of a new semester in school has officially started. I am currently in the Health Information Management/Medical Coding degree program at college. I don't mind the material, but it has a horrible amount of homework--it's just insane... Read more
That's right. Wool socks. Maybe not the coolest type of clothing on the planet, but in this weather, sort of necessary.
Speaking of weather, if you have had the opportunity to watch the news in the last 24 hours, you would notice that it's bee... Read more

It's been a crazy August, and although it was fun, I am kind of glad it is over. Before I left for my trip, I was down to 202 pounds, losing 7 in two weeks. I don't know what I weigh now, because of TOM, and am usually carrying extra water weigh... Read more
First of all, an update on my fitness and weight loss. The month of July has managed to be a bust, with the only weight loss I've had is losing the weight I gained after the 4th of July. My weight has stayed the same, minus maybe one pound, alth... Read more
