I have had a crazy week - I was busy at work with meetings, projects, deadlines and a demo (I hate talking in front of people...). Home was crazy with just the normal weekday schedules. On top of it all, I had my monthly head-spinning PMS that... Read more
Fitting in my strength routines
Tuesday, April 28, 2009      6 comments

Another milestone met last night

I went for a walk outside last night in shorts and they didn't ride up in the crotch area (I know... tmi). I think this is the first time in years I have been able to walk without discreetly (or probably not as descreet as I think...) pulling m... Read more

The battle with the cream puff
Monday, April 20, 2009      5 comments

I will be honest... I ate a lot of crap this weekend. In two days I had two wedding showers plus a big (late) Easter dinner with my family. Each gathering had plenty of food - snacks, appitizers, desserts. I was also at the mercy of my mom's ... Read more
