Today was a pretty good day. I've eaten (so far) within my calorie range. I'm getting closer to meeting the low end of that range but I'm getting my daily protein requirement and other macros so I'm not too worried. I haven't gotten in my exerci... Read more

I was so happy today! I was searching through my clothes to see if there were things in there that I hadn't worn in a while (the purpose was to see what could be donated and what could be kept). I came across a pair of jeans, size 18. Now ... Read more

My shoulder is completely better today. Taking those two days to rest it was really the best thing I could have done. I was able to get in a great workout today. I worked triceps, biceps, hamstrings, quads and glutes. Plus I did my cardio as wel... Read more
