This is not a good week post. I have fallen off the wagon yet again. I skipped my workouts for three days, didn't limit my calories, didn't post my food. I did eat at least three vegetables a day, and drank my water. I ha... Read more

It's been a very peaceful Thanksgiving, I must say. Although I am up much too late yet again, consumed with heartburn from tonight's pizza. And yes, I have eaten far too much this week. And yes, I haven't done my Sparkpeople work in much... Read more
