Good news and bad news for this weeks weigh-in. I'm at 123.5 which means no change from last week (good) but that's one pound more than the first day of the challenge (bad). I plan to fix this fluctuation train that I'm on. I joined a Boo... Read more

I need to adopt a little of this attitude at work. I'm just not feeling like I'm going to get anywhere as a full-time PT. I'm confident with the programs but I am not good at selling myself. And people still make me nervous enough that I don'... Read more

I woke up this morning feeling really "icky" despite having a REALLY good night's sleep. I went to work anyway and had a productive hour with one of my clients. After that I went to the chiropractor. Usually, the combination of those two even... Read more

I had a serious carbfest yesterday and so, today, I am also up one pound from last week. I'm PMSing, too and that doesn't help. It's no excuse for inhaling a scone, a chocolate croissant AND a cinnamon roll though. Official weigh-in is: 122.5 ... Read more

I went for a postural analysis today. Long story short, it's safe to say that I'm a little more than a little out of whack. My right shoulder is lower than my left, my right hip is pulling back farther than my left. My core, although strong, s... Read more
