Do you ever feel like all you are doing is eating?
I am having that kind of day today. One of my goals this month was to not eat after dinnertime. I have been unable to stick to this, because I just cannot seem to get enough calories or nutrition in earlier in the day. Today for example, I am... Read more
Day 42 Learning
It seems it has been a while since I wrote. I surprise myself with that, until I remind myself that it mostly has to do with the challenges I have with this computer that I am sitting at, or the connectivity in my house...oh well. At least I a... Read more

Day 10, day 3 of bootcamp and I am a-ok
Emotionally today has been a thoroughly craptacular day. Despite that, I stayed at the low end of my calorie range, drank more than 8 glasses of water, did my third day of bootcamp, and went for a walk. On top of that, I just did something I hav... Read more
