Day 9, and other victories
Today I swam for 35 minutes. I did a total of 1000 backstrokes (300+300+400) and various kicks in between each group. It was hard to get started since I worked late last night, in the city, and had to commute home. I got to bed well after one... Read more

Day 6 of 10min/day

Sore Foot Slowing Me Down
It's been a long haul with my right foot. I thought I was doing the right thing going to the foot doctor, but I think he's done more damage than good. I've been barely able to walk for well over a week now. The orthotics he keeps adjusting fo... Read more
I must be approaching a good dose on my thyroid meds. I'm feeling pretty good this week. I've been a little down this week. I think it's due to the time change, weather change. This time of year is hard with shorter days. I've also been bat... Read more

Up to 175 again, but SparkPeople is helping to identify the problem
As you can imagine, I'm quite frustrated right now. I went to the doctor yesterday, stepped on the scale and it had confirmed what I already knew. I've been gaining the last few months despite being active and eating pretty well. I feel exhau... Read more

500 Stairs in my routine today!
