Storms are calming
I noticed its been a while since I blogged and its mainly because of the chaos that is my life most days. Generally that chaos is just busyness, sprinkled with stressful events like cars breaking down. Recently it was my dd's car that broke down... Read more

I was bad, bad, bad
Okay today I gave in to a craving. It was very yummy, but it put me SO over my calories. Without it I may have been pushing the edge, but probably would have squeaked by just under the wire. My sin today was a grande caramel frappucino with whip... Read more

Why oh why does it take SO long to lose a pound or lose an inch? I need it to go faster to stay motivated. I need to SEE results, in the form of fitting into a smaller size or a visual on the scale. My current loss could just be water retention ... Read more
The TRS weight loss challenge started today, so I had to weigh in. To my surprise I was down 3 lbs from a little over a week ago. I'm sure it was mostly water releasing since my measurements haven't changed.
