This has been a wonderful journey. I had my moments where I took SP breaks and always came back. However, this time around I am leaving again. Permanently. With the closure of SP happening on August 17th, I find it to be utterly idiotic on... Read more

I suppose these things happen. After I lost my 52-day log-in streak I was disappointed that I guess I decided, "Well, that will never happen again." But I picked myself back up and kept going. By the time I hit the 2 days log-in, I found myself ... Read more

To start, I got my first vaccine on Thursday!! Woot! I was in and out of the Meijer clinic in less than 30 minutes. Within an hour of getting the shot, I started to feel super wonky. I had a mild headache, but nothing too severe. My arm was sore... Read more

For 13 months I have been in my house thanks to Covod. Working out felt next to impossible. Going to the gym was out of the questions. How was I going to work out? I didn't own any gym equipment. I had given up. A month before Christmas I s... Read more

It's been a week today since I hurt my back. I am moving around much better since I hurt it. However, trying to get comfortable at night for bed is a painful experience. I toss and turn just trying to get my back comfortable. I hope the weekend ... Read more

I woke up this morning feeling worlds better. I worked out for 30 minutes and have been pretty much active since. I closed out my workout ring on my Apple watch and almost have my stand time ring closed out. Just need to work on my calories ring... Read more
