Friday, April 30, 2010      2 comments

This hasn't been the best week in eating or exercise. Had a great start and then kinda fell off the wagon. I have been short sleep... and I discovered something... I eat when I am tired in a ploy to help me stay awake. I am not hungry, but I ... Read more

The good news is that things are actually going quite well. I'm just very tired. Still haven't gotten a day to sleep in since Daylight Savings Time kicked in last week... but I am sleeping more soundly and my body is adjusting to the the pre-t... Read more
