  • Procrastination is not laziness, it is FEAR.

    2/20/2017 2:55:25 PM, by CPT.SPACEMONKEY

    I have been struggling with this a lot over the last month and is probably a part of the reason I have not been able to make myself be as active as I want to on my team. Procrastination for me is a serious issue these days and I have realized that it is not being lazy at all but it is extreme... Read more

    How many times have I said that? Too many to think about. Anyway, I'm not going to give up. Yes, it's depressing that I went on an extended carb binge and gained back the entire 12 lbs I lost. But I refuse to be beaten. Here's my plan: Log EVERYTHING I eat, BEFORE I eat it. Don't bite it u... Read more

    The desire to stop suffering is not the same thing as being willing to change my behavior to prevent it.

    2/14/2017 12:17:28 PM, by -JAMES-

    If we had 8 fingers (four on each hand) , then 168 would be special because 168 is a multiple of 8. We count in tens because we have 10 fingers not 8. That makes 170 special because it is a multiple of 10, and 168 is not special. What's in a number anyways? Its just a number.... Now if... Read more

    1/29/2017 2:04:24 AM, by HOPERISING

    The weekend hasn't gone so well. Why? First, all the kids are home. Second, I am broke.

At first I did try to eat my own food separately, but everyone, including th... Read more
