I walked for over an hour today! The trees are beautiful this time of year. They are a mix of green, yellow, orange and red. It was perfect weather for a walk too. It was cloudy and well below 70. Currently, I'm watching an amazing documen... Read more

Had an awesome workout today! The free weight section of my gym was completely empty. So I had first dibs on all of the equipment. I even got to try out the squat rack, which I've been eyeing for over a month. I worked out extra hard and can alr... Read more

I finally did it! I took my first crossfit class. It was an intense workout with very little rest in between exercises. I wish that I could say that I enjoyed all of it, but I was conflicted the entire time. In one hour session, I went through a... Read more
Day 5 of My Healthy Eating Challenge
Thursday, September 05, 2013      2 comments

Today I cheated. I cheated bad. I indulged in foods that I know that I shouldn't have indulged in. Why did I do it? Was it because I knew I could? Was it because I knew they would taste good? Even though I know that the food isn't healthy ... Read more
