It’s A Lifestyle Change

So I am doing the Dietbet and so far so good. I am down 6 lbs from the initial weigh-in. There are some hardcore woman competing with me so I am still only in 4th place!?! I haven't been good on my exercise, so this week that is going to be my new challenge. Start waking up early again and get in that morning workout. I am also challenging myself to not drink coff[...]

Where I was struck completely speechless and stunned, as the person verbally assaulting me continued to speak on and on, that I couldn't even defend myself. It's this odd feeling of are they really saying what I think they are saying, surely I am imagining it, it almo[...]

Making Healthy Choices

This has been a really strange year so far. I started off about 40 lbs. lighter than I am now. It has been a real struggle to get a handle on my health since having 5 hand surgeries this past year. I have also had a job change where I went from moving around all the time to now working at a desk the entire day. Don't get me wrong, I love my new job and have n[...]
