Saturday, January 24, 2009      2 comments

I'm noticing a pattern. For the past 7 days or so, I've been hungrier than I was for the two-weeks prior. I've been paying careful attention, and it's not cravings, it's hunger. I need more food to feel satisfied. My stomach is growling sooner. ... Read more

Sunday, January 04, 2009      4 comments

Today was a challenge. I had a stellar fitness day - I did two back to back classes at the gym and burned mega calories. I also ate very well all day, with about 800 calories to play with for dinner and the rest of the evening. Then, a... Read more
