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

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
