Yesterday I was so-so on tracking my food for the first time in a LONG time. I don't think I went over my calorie totals... I also did NOT exercise. I am disappointed in myself. But its just one long as I don't let that be the begin... Read more

Am I prejudiced?

Tuesday, August 31, 2010      3 comments

I have to wonder. See, I started weight watchers on 6/15 of this year, and I really "clicked" with the leader I started with. She had/has a straightforward, no nonsense (no bulls*it) attitude that I liked. But I guess she was a victim of ... Read more

Well, my plan yesterday had been to ride my stationary bike after I got home (9:30pm) then chop my salad for the next day's lunch. And to get to bed at a decent hour so I could ask hubby to wake me up a bit early so I could get day 2 of C25K ov... Read more
