Sunday, March 29, 2009      3 comments

What nerve!

Friday, March 27, 2009      6 comments

I expect to be losing faster and get frustrated at the slowness. Yet, I'm a lazy exerciser. That is, I do a lot, but not at a rate that would make my metabolism stand at attention. I've really gotta step it up. I've got that new elliptical th... Read more

Weary but Not Discouraged

Sunday, March 22, 2009      2 comments

Sometimes I wish that I could wave a magic wand and be at goal. I just get tired of paying such close attention to weight all of the time. Not to be mistaken for discouragement, because I'm not. But I do get tired of caring about all of the d... Read more

Here Comes a Major Challenge
