So, I'm at the dr's office growling about having gained weight and it's GOT to be my thyroid levels are off. She looked me in the eye & said, have you done ANYTHING to help the weight stay off?

The "Fun" Job

Stress SUCKS! It has so many faces...

but it's only 10 minutes of walking.....
I stepped on the scale for the first time in.... a while this morning. It came very close to agreeing with the Dr's scale.... just shy of 200. I was NOT happy! But, it's my own fault, but I had NO idea!
See, about 2 months ago I just los... Read more

Trail Training Journal - Entry 2
This was sorta planned, but more for fun than training. It was another interesting hike. Not very strenuous, but tricky none the less. First I'll start by telling you that the full name of the location is "Camillus Forest Unique Area" and it ... Read more
