I had a great weekend with my husband in the woods hiking and biking. We had a great time. I wasn't able to track my food while there, but I tried to put it all in the chart when I got home today. I feel good because I am getting exercise every... Read more

I'm supposed to be calling people for my dissertation research. Instead, I am doing this. When I don't get things done, I just feel worse. I will go force myself to call everyone on the list until I reach someone or until I've called them all wi... Read more
