Battle Plan 11, baby steps
This will be my 6th 8-Week Battle! I can't believe how little I've managed to accomplish in all these battles - I have yet to hit 20 pounds lost here on Spark! I'm only a couple pounds away from that point, and would like to get there before t... Read more
Posted to my Red Squad, but a lesson for everyone.

Figuring it out.
Okay, so I set my goals yesterday for this month. Now I'm trying to figure out the best way to keep track of them. I know blogging daily would be the best way to go, but I also know myself better than that. I would do great for the first thre... Read more
