Ugh... its been a crazy week. My goal was to lose 3 lbs and I did. I had some very exciting happy times, and some times when I just wanted to run far and fast away. I don't know what's going on with me and my emotions. The thing is... I managed ... Read more

So, I love water. Generally I guzzle it down with a passion. Lately, however, I just can't seem to drink it! I tell myself... get your water and drink it, but when I pick it up and start drinking... it's like i have to force even half a glass do... Read more
