In the beginning of this year I committed to 10 minutes of exercise everyday. My streak has not been broken since then! Now it is a habit. The great thing is I often do more than 10 minutes but my streak is enough to get me moving.... Read more

I started rehabbing my knee after my knee replacement and I haven't missed a single day of exercise since the beginning of the year. It's strange that before rehabbing my knee, I didn't maintain a streak for this long. The difference is the dete... Read more

I didn't think I was in denial over my weight. I must have been. I lost 65 pounds and felt heavier. I began seeing myself again. Yesterday I worked out using the Xbox 360 Kinect. The outline of my body was displayed. Really? That is me? I guess ... Read more

The other day I ate out for breakfast and lunch. I did not think I could meet my calorie goal even though I had a salad and a reasonable breakfast. In the past, I would eat (cook) whatever I wanted for dinner figuring I had already blown it. Ho... Read more
