So I've pretty much cut back severely, almost completely (for a month and a half) all of my alcohol consumption. The problem is, and I don't know if this is related, but my soda intake is sky-rocketing. I used to very rarely have soda - and now... Read more

So it's been a while since I've blogged. I've fallen off the fitness wagon as well as the healthy eating wagon. I decided to start eating all kinds of meat again, and it just so happened along the same lines I gave up on healthy eating. I'd get... Read more

So it's been a bit since I've had a Burn Out day in the morning boot camp. Last Friday I was sick. The preceding Wednesday I looked pretty deplorable and even my trainer was a bit concerned. So Friday I ended up laying around all day to rest up ... Read more
