Struggling through a snack attack. Really want JUNK. So much of it around the office to be had today. Instead of 'white knuckling' it or giving in, I am having a hot cup of tea with almond milk in. It isn't the same but it might just do the tric... Read more

I had 4 days of full tracking last week, with only one day that I was within calorie range. Two days of partial tracking with a lot of free for all eating (was away for those days). I get on the scale this morning. I am UP two lbs. And I get FRU... Read more

I did my second indoor duathalon this morning (run, bike, run). My time was about what I did last year. Slightly more on the track, slightly less on the bike. I had 3 other runners on the track with me. I am slow so they passed me a lot. No bi... Read more
