That's right! I did it. I found a personal trainer that I can afford and who has had very successful clients. I am so scared! He seems like a very sweet person, but I've never had a personal trainer--only soccer and softball coaches, but... Read more

Well I've been really determined and motivated this week. Every other day I went for my 5k walk/jog and I ate pretty well (I thought), but I'm not seeing as much of an accomplishment as I wanted to. So, I reevaluated my week, went through my fi... Read more
