I have realized that I am an emotional eater. I never really thought I was until I was put back on my depression/anxiety meds. They make me not hungry although I do eat because I know that I need to. I make better food choices though because ... Read more

I haven't been on Spark People for a bit. I was exercising and trying to eat well. I joined a RIPT program at my job and 3 days a week after work I would go to the gym and work my booty off (literally). I lost a few inches all over and was re... Read more

Today was a little harder riding to work. I swear the small inclines (hills) on my way to work GREW overnight. My legs were definitely feeling the workout earlier in the ride. But I also know from previous workouts that the first week or two ... Read more

I've been really sore lately in my back. At first I thought I've been sleeping wrong, the soreness is between my shoulders. But now I think I'm sore because I've been doing more push-ups in my workouts (since I've been able to do more push-ups... Read more

Thursday, May 10, 2012      1 comments

I skipped my workout last night. I decided sleep and rest was more important. I'll make up the workout tonight. I went to bed early but honestly it didn't do me much good because I didn't sleep well at all. So I think tonight I'll do my work... Read more
