Monday, August 10, 2009      3 comments

Feeling a little tired and depressed today. But I think the key word is LITTLE. Usually when I would start to feel like this, I wouldn't want to get out of bed or do anything. But I had sufficient energy to get up (even early!), get to work, a... Read more

Wednesday, August 05, 2009      1 comments

I did great yesterday! The only challenge is in keeping my sodium down. I'm not even eating all the calories and carbs I could, but I really don't want to eat if I'm not hungry. I've been eating breakfast, a light snack mid-morning, lunch, a ... Read more
