    Went to a birthday party/cookout today with my family. I was able to eat the foods I like (in moderation of course) and had a great time. My biggest, proudest moment of the day came when it was time for cake and ice cream. I had none. I was able to say "no thank you". I never thought a day like this... Read more

  • Stay the course

    6/25/2016 10:21:34 PM, by MILINDOE

    I decided that upping the ante on daily steps may be a bit too ambitious. While I'm hitting above 5,000 daily, I'm not hitting 6,000 or even close to 6,000 daily. More often than not, it's the lower 5,000 range. So, when I can consistently hit 5,500 a day, I'll shoot for that 6,000. Or not. I'm ambi... Read more
