Here were my July goals and how I did:
1. Track my food EVERY day. - I don't have internet at the lake house and so I didn't track the 5 days we were there. I also didn't track one other day. I don't think I'll set this goal again until we ha... Read more

Rough Day Turned Great!
I have ended up having a wonderful day after the rough start. (See post this morning.) I got my physical. I was feeling pretty nauseous by the time it was over - I didn't get to eat until 10:20. But, I'm so glad to have that over with!

I'm having kind of a rough morning. For one thing, I have a physical at 9:15 and can't eat until after that. My tummy is growling and it isn't quite 8 am. Ugh!

It went really well! W6D1 has three runs:... Read more

(This post is for girls!)
So, I thought my old... um, from about 7 years ago... sports bras were doing the job. I've looked for others, but haven't found anything else I like. Well, today my trainer had me doing jumping jacks and I was look... Read more

I guess I've always known that there are some foods that make me want MORE instead of leaving me feeling satisfied. Potato chips are like that. You know, "you can't eat just one!" Cheetos, too. My mom and I were in college together and she could... Read more
