Friday, June 01, 2018      3 comments

How did that happen? I can't believe how fast those past eight weeks flew by! Granted, I know the Summer 2018 Challenge will be right around the corner. I feel like I didn't participate very much except posting my weigh-ins weekly and posting my... Read more

My b/f and I ended up joining the gym last night. I had not planned on it. My b/f wanted to wait until he quit smoking. But we were able to get the sign up price down to $100 and it is only $50 a month for the two of us. Plus we will be able to ... Read more

Okay, I just want to start out by saying I know how important tracking what goes in my mouth, every day, all day and every single item. I honestly believe it keeps me more accountable and helps me know where my calories/fat/protein/fiber/etc are... Read more
Choices
Friday, July 15, 2016      8 comments

Life is full of choices, the good, the bad and the ugly! Some choices are automatic, like drinking water when you are thirsty. I do not have to think about, I just do it. Some choices are painstaking, what car to buy?!?! But for someone that has... Read more
