February Has Come and GONE!

Monday, January 02, 2012      3 comments

1/1/12 No activity was planned for the day … a day of rest for me. Food was so-so. I thought I was making good choices, but it turned out to be too many calories for a day with no activity. Still, the scale was kind to me this morning. I am happ... Read more

Why I Have (and Need) a Personal Trainer …
Saturday, December 10, 2011      1 comments

Two words: I’m l.a.z.y.! I will never push myself as hard as my trainer pushes me … although he’s hoping I soon get to the point where I will push myself harder than I have been. I really can do more than I’ve been doing … I am capable of so muc... Read more
