Good Day Anyway
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      17 comments

Disappointment. My personal trainer was not at the gym this morning. Nobody contacted me. Not very professional. They said he had a family emergency and should be back either the 10th or 11th. I had already done a 10 minute elliptical warm ... Read more

Well, Duh!!
Thursday, December 27, 2012      22 comments

Please don't comment "Duh" after you read this blog. Although, I would understand if you did! I finally put 2 and 2 together and figured out why my weight went up a handful of pounds last year. I realized that whenever I reached the top of ... Read more
Not Deprived
Wednesday, December 26, 2012      14 comments

I've been reading some great blogs about Christmas eating, abundance, and feelings of deprivation. It is true that when there are many foods to choose it is easy to take too much. Yesterday I ate within my calorie range. I enjoyed my food immens... Read more
