Fractured toe and 0 motivation ! Decided to truck on anyway!
I ALMOST gave up my training for the 5k coming up due to a few issues, 1 being the fractured toe. BUT, then decided that I need to just tape it up and keep on. In my mind, I have to be a healthy role model for my daughter and this is motivation ... Read more

Was disappointed to see the scale go up a tad this am. But this evening when I write it down, I realized I still lost almost 4 lbs this month. About 1 lb per week, which to me it's slow, but healthy. So it's just a reminder to keep it up, since ... Read more

Looking into the garbage...
