    10/20/2019 9:30:38 PM, by DIAMONDWIFE2018

    Sunday funday! Not really because I just adulted today but I do enjoy the results of adulting so it is worth it. Charleston and I got our walk in this morning at the park which was stupid busy. I really hate when people don't control their dogs or don't even bother to leash them. We had several dogs... Read more

    10/19/2019 11:50:47 AM, by JUSTME29

    After a couple of really great weeks of exercise I stalled out. I had parent/teacher conferences one week, so there was time prepping for that and then after 2 late nights I was exhausted, and then out of town on the weekend. So then it was a week without exercise. Then, just when I was ready to ... Read more

    9/28/2019 8:31:10 PM, by JUSTME29

    I know that's not the real saying, but it's more PG friendly than the real thing. I decided this morning that I want to run a 5K. Or more accurately, I want to be able to run a 5K. I'm not a runner. I hate running. Even as a kid I hated it. The only time I'm willing to run is if a bear or ... Read more
