Not giving up, no matter what!

Friday, April 01, 2011      18 comments

I'm up 1.2 lbs today. No, this is not an April Fool's Day joke. I'm not discouraged, hopeless, or frustrated. I did Level 1 of Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred" 3 days ago. Today I can almost walk normally. The past 2 days I was limping aro... Read more

Put it in writing!

Thursday, March 17, 2011      12 comments

25 days ago I noticed my dear friend SUGARBEHONEYPIE write "Day 1 of my 27 day 'Boot it into Spring' Bootcamp Challenge". Of course I wondered what that was and asked her about it as I'm sure other friends did. And every day since then there's... Read more
