Weekend at Mom's and Meghan's b-day
Well, we picked a nice and hot weekend to go away!! Thought we might escape some of the DC heat, but with the exception of today, it was hotter here than at home. The first day here, we spent all day indoors! Funny we come to visit, but here is ... Read more

I really enjoy summer and all of the fresh fruits and veggies and the sunshine (not the heat and humidity!)
Summer time is always a good time for me weight wise. I'm more active, despite the heat, I eat much better and I just tend to do be... Read more
Finally, a nice loss on the scale...at least more than a few ounces
So, I had my WI today. Finally, down 2 pounds. I've been working really hard, have faithfully kept track of everything and stayed in my range, drank tons of water... and still the scale wasn't budging.
This last week I restarted C25K and I ... Read more
C25K Week 2
I'm off to start week 2 of C25K. At first I thought I might need to do week 1 again and get into this very slowly, but I know I've got it in me to run at 90 second intervals!
I'm ready with my iPod. Yes, Simone, it was so simple and I can't... Read more
