I'm hurting right now. Each step is a bit painful, my hips are screaming at me, and my eyelids want to fall closed. But that's because I've walked 4.5 miles in the past two days. 1.67 yesterday and 2.83 today. After having not worked out in abou... Read more

It's time for me to get off my butt and get on my feet. Enough of the excuses and procrastination. I'm so tired of being embarrassed by how long it has been since I worked out. Almost four months. What the heck is that? It's like one day I just ... Read more

2010 has started out on a pretty good note for me. I feel motivated to do the work. Change my diet, work out, and just change my lifestyle to be a healthier person. For some reason I thought it was going to be so difficult but it really doesn't... Read more

I've really let myself get away from working out and eating right this summer. I kept telling myself I was too busy. I would get back to it soon when all the fun stuff with lots of food was over. Well summer's over and I need to get back on trac... Read more
