So today I am fighting grouchiness. I thought I did very well with my food tracking yesterday but the scale hasn't moved. This might also be because I haven't been moving so I'm really going to have to address that soon. I have a pedometer bu... Read more

So last night was my first time ever in a tanning booth. I paid the extra money to do stand up so that I didn't have to worry about turning at the right times to get my sides done. Somehow that makes me feel like I should be on a spit. Anyway... Read more
