Back in the rhythm
This week has been going pretty well for my first week back on track. I'm already down 3.4 lbs since I've been back and that's just since Monday! Of course 2 lbs of that alone was probably sodium bloat, but I'll take it.

Sorry that I haven't been here much lately. To keep things short, life is still crazy. I've been horrible with my diet, but I'm hoping to turn that around this week. The good news is that I haven't been slacking on my exercise at all though, whi... Read more

C25K - Week 1
I decided to go back and try out C25K again yesterday evening. Every time I've tried it I get horrible shin splints. Yes, it's probably due to shoes but I don't have the money to get professionally fit shoes - please spare me the lecture. I *kno... Read more
