    2/7/2016 11:33:39 PM, by LENLEN3

    Augh it's too late to write anything. I'm already behind though, so I figured batter something then nothing? I guess???? There isn't much to talk about though. It's snowing. Again. I marched in place to get my 10k steps? I did my 75 minutes of ashtanga and tried tracking it on my Fitbit, but I th... Read more

    2/7/2016 1:22:49 PM, by AHEALTHYGAMER

    Hey everyone! I just found out I'm today's motivational member and I can't believe it! That is so encouraging and flattering and I just wanted to tell all of you thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    2/3/2016 11:22:34 PM, by CHRYS00

    So I haven't been all that great the last few days. Not the worst days I've had, but not the best for sure. Upside, my "FINALLY not too tight" jeans didn't go back to being too tight so there is that. I like to think I am at least doing better on my bad days, such an event would usually end with a ...
