A break from my usual blogging for the GBFU challenge...nothing too exciting in this blog. ;) I had two weeks off of GBFU, two weeks off of work, and two weeks without group classes at the gym. I thrive with group class - they force me to... Read more

I have 3 more weeks until my initial wedding dress measurements. The seamstress has asked that I try to be as close to my weight as possible so the measurements will remain correct. So, I was trying to be down to 150 by then. I've made such g... Read more
