What a week!
I feel kind of lost right now! I have just been crazy busy and so exhausted at night I can't find the energy to even log on here. Now this has got to STOP! :( I've been trying to keep track of calories in my head - not sure how THAT is going... Read more
Need second wind....
Badly. I am soooo tired right now. I got through a chapter of studying, but reading it just about put me to sleep. I've got one chapter to go before I just start reviewing for the next few days, but I've GOT to get up and do something else in... Read more

Good week - ahhh!
Well, actually it's been a little stressful, with my youngest turning 14, getting confirmed at our church, and graduating 8th grade all in the same week. Oh, my..... this too shall pass. :)
I did weigh in today and I lost 1.5 pounds in my... Read more
I have been doing pretty well, actually. LOVE the nutrition tracker and fitness tracker. After 3 days, I'm already over my goals for minutes AND calories burnt for the entire week.
But I have to say, it's amazing how you do things in ha... Read more
