Just a frustration blog right now... My boss, the dietary fad queen... just came in at lunch a little while ago all excited about the "healthy" hot dogs she found... they were "all angus beef with no nitrates"... I am sure that since t... Read more

... and you know, it feels good. Had 3 high cal days, so I'm working hard to keep that down today and tomorrow. It's also looking like I'll make my calorie burn goal for the first time in forever. I am a little over 400 calories away from it ... Read more

It's been quite a week. A week ago Friday my ankle decided it was going to go out... I sprained it very badly in 2001 and it sometimes just says, "I don't think so." Apparently it's better now. But I took it easy with the exercise, mostly doi... Read more
