It is terribly hard to find and stem motivation at times when things just seem to stagnate. I will admit it fully, I have been on an excruciating plateau that has been stubborn and unbreakable. What keeps me going? I am stubborn. ... Read more

Renewed Spirit
Wednesday, August 22, 2012      9 comments

I've had my spirit renewed. I've managed to rekindle some motivation and stem that extra UMPF that keeps me going. Seeing the scale move has helped, I'll admit it. It is nice to know that my scale *isn't* really busted (ha-ha!) like I was... Read more
