Recently someone put a new hard drive in my computer. Yesterday it was running so slow that I installed Ccleaner (which I've had in the past) to remove all extraneous files. It screwed up my computer. Although I can check my "favorites" from... Read more

Did you ever take advantage of the reports that you can run through SP? This morning I got on the scale and I'm at 202.6. My first milestone is to get below 200. This is a HUGE goal for me because I don't remember the last time I was below... Read more

I work full time at Walgreens. This means that my work schedule is all over the place. Most often I work until 10:30 at night--sometimes later if we're busy. I get home and although physically tired, I'm wide awake. It takes a couple of hour... Read more

I think these are my new key words. Every day I've been doing a series of stretches for my back, 100 crunches, and 30 minutes of walking/marching on the trampoline. In 7 days I had not seen even one ounce go down on the scale. Today I got on ... Read more

I had today off of work with nothing to do but laundry and cooking my meals for the week. Every time I cook something I have to figure out the calories, fat, carbs, and protein per serving so it's a bit intensive. I cooked turkey sausage a... Read more
