I got on the scale this morning and it still hasn't moved. It made me frustrated at first. But then I remembered - you have ONLY been making good choices in nutrition and doing your fitness for SIX WEEKS. You lost 17 pounds and dropped a pant... Read more

I went to the gym last night, which was AWESOME because both of my workout buddies cancelled on me - but I went anyway! I got on the elliptical trainer determined to do my 30 minutes like I did the day before. I got started and had been going ... Read more

I had a pretty good day yesterday, although I didn't get in any exercise. My friend who was supposed to meet me at the gym had to work late, so I didn't go. It made me want to be rebellious with my eating (isn't that crazy?) so I was alone at ... Read more

I attended a jewelry party at a friend's house last night - and yes, I won a prize from the jewelry lady. But that wasn't the best part! The best part was that I won over the food! I did it by eating an apple before I went so I wouldn't be hu... Read more
