  • Making progress

    12/14/2014 6:18:15 PM, by PDXLOR

    I tried on a pair of pants from the back of my closet today. They are a size smaller than what I've been wearing and they fit! It is amazing how good that feels.

    BLC 26 has been going on for nearly 11 weeks now. This is a good time for reflection anyway, but considering the dumpster fire that was my weekend, it's an even better time to reflect on my performance in general.

On Tuesday, I reached 10,000 steps in one day for the first time. On Thanksgiving day, I was careful to t... Read more
