Thursday, November 01, 2012      1 comments

Update: I still agree with 90% of what I said here - it's true that we have to do things in moderation and be accountable for them. And it's also true that we have to make a lifestyle change rather than a diet. That being said. I feel really sic... Read more

Friday, October 26, 2012      5 comments

I'm unsure of why God wanted me to have IBS, though I am sure he had a reason for it. I'd imagine it has something to do with character growth or something like that. Whatever the case may be, it's definitely the thorn in my side. *Potty T... Read more

I'm sure this too will pass, just like every other challenge and I know this is just a hurdle along the way. Today I went out to a local farm with Caleb so he could visit the animals and the pumpkin patch. It was a fun experience until abo... Read more

I made a mistake. A nearly 400 calorie (I'm guessing) mistake at that. :( I bought some Albertsons muffins early today. They were a good price and I've been craving carbs. I figured I'd eat a half a muffin and share the other half, but I was fee... Read more

I've done a little bit of yoga before, but I weighed less. I never expected how hard it would be at this weight. The beginner videos I tried were extremely difficult and I only made it 11 and 14 minutes respectively. :( BUT I read thi... Read more
