I'm a Work in Progress
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      7 comments

I did everything wrong yesterday! I ate TOO LITTLE during the day. I did some minor planned snacking in the evening, but when all was said and done I'd eaten less than 1000 calories for the day. Then I went to bed and couldn't sleep. ... Read more
