Wednesday, August 26, 2009      7 comments

Sometimes I need to take a step back and look at the big picture and see what I have accomplished since May 10 when I started SparkPeople again SERIOUSLY. I lost 10 pounds since that time, I am eating very healthy food and actually crave it, I f... Read more
30 Day Shred Day 2
Tuesday, August 25, 2009      6 comments

I really surprised myself that I was able to make it through more of the jumping jacks without feeling the need to call 911. I cannot believe the sweat you produce with this wicked workout and this is just Level 1. I shouldn't say "JUST" Level 1... Read more

Sunday, August 16, 2009      10 comments

With that said, I have decided to throw everything into the trash (not really) and start fresh with a fitness routine. Why? Because it is starting to affect my moods and that is not good. Why do I have to be such a mental oddity? You don't need ... Read more
