Thursday, September 04, 2014      1 comments

I've been weighing in on Friday's and clearly that hasn't worked for me. I think I use that as an excuse to get off track when I see a loss during the week, I splurge on the weekend, regaining what I lost. I have changed my weigh in day to Mon... Read more

Nutrition is going well. We have been cooped up for so long with this awful cold spell that it doesn't seem like it will ever end. Struggled with the winter blues the last few days and then woke up this morning with 8 inches of snow in the dri... Read more

It's been a week since I started my 5am workouts and it was quite strange that my internal clock woke me up on Saturday and Sunday @ 4:50 as well. I can't wait for this frigid weather to start warming so I can add evening walking into the mix. ... Read more
