We had lots of snow last night. I'm actually happy, because it finally looks like winter outside - so pretty! This storm was well-predicted, so lots of school districts in my area decided a day in advance that there would be early dismissal. ... Read more

I did it - I fell off the wagon for the first time in over five months. Goodbye, longest streak ever. A few days ago I predicted that two parties in one weekend would press my trigger button. Was I setting myself up for a self-fulfilling ... Read more

I have definitely broken through a mini-plateau to a new level. All of a sudden I've been noticing even more changes - my abs keep looking better (even though my butt's still flabby!) and other people have been noticing too. I had a conversati... Read more

I'm on a new kick right now to really try to get more sleep, so I'm going to try to keep this short. Getting enough sleep is key for keeping my appetite in control and having energy for working out (and for life in general). Yesterday - 13... Read more
