Finding time to exercise

I feel better and my cough is receding so that's nice. I had a pleasant Halloween. I ate some candy but I still managed to stay in my calorie range and didn't feel a bit deprived. I know that my diet is not ideal for everyone but it works for... Read more

I know it seems odd to have to regroup after such a short time but I got sick last week and totally stopped doing anything. I'm still not well and not feeling like keeping up with my health. I refuse to let that be the end. I'm not one who's ... Read more

Friday, October 14, 2011      3 comments

A blog post by my SP friend Vicki got me thinking about family and their influence when it comes to food. This was not a topic brought up in Body Clutter (or atleast for the exploration part) and I think it's important. Family really matters w... Read more
