I've decided to get younger
Tuesday, August 27, 2013      3 comments

Today was hard
Thursday, October 07, 2010      4 comments

Today it was really difficult to get started on my exercise. The quick start on my weight loss is slowing, and I just didn't feel up to getting on the treadmill today. But I pushed through, I actually made one minute further than I've done in... Read more

honest with myself
Thursday, February 04, 2010      7 comments

The biggest obstacle I face is myself. Typically, when I go off plan in a big way, I give up trying to log it here, or even in my own notebook because I don't know the caloric info of a restaurant meal. That makes my logging incomplete. Soon ... Read more
