Monday, April 16, 2012      5 comments

I finally got a workout in today, at 7:30pm. I walked around the track down by the soccer fields. I couldn't find my sweats and was in a hurry, so I decided to walk instead of jogging. I did two miles in under 31 minutes. I feel really good ... Read more

Wednesday, April 11, 2012      2 comments

Just a reminder-I'm doing the "no-meat" thing to support my Hubby. I would really like to add a little meat of some kind, and will add it back (a small amount) down the road. I didn't sleep well last night, and I tried zero caffeine toda... Read more

Tuesday, April 10, 2012      5 comments

I've been good at getting Hubby outside for walks the last few days, but he really does slow me down. I was happy to be able to get out on my own today for a four mile walk. I'm still adapting to the new way of eating, so I'm not back to joggi... Read more
