Thursday, June 28, 2012      3 comments

I've always counted myself at the queen of excuses. I can't work out in the evenings, I work 16 hour days and just want to veg for a couple of hours before going to bed. It's raining out, it's too hot out, it's too bright, it's too dark, I... Read more

Being addicted to my scale you can imagine my horror when I stepped on one morning and the message came up, low battery. No numbers, just that annoying message that tells me I need to go to the store. Except I kept forgetting why I was going ... Read more

This can't be Monday, how can this be a Monday? I was thrilled this morning to step on the scale and see that I had left the 280s. I stepped on twice to make sure, 279.5. I decided not to push my luck and step on the scale a third time.... Read more
