Friday, January 31, 2014      2 comments

Although I've been vegan for years now, I've had little luck losing a substantial amount of weight. Following the advice in the "eat to live" program, I hope I can reach my goals. It's really straight forward, which I like. It's a low-fat, pl... Read more

I weighed myself this morning and I gained 2 pounds! How is that possible? Even though I had a rather lazy weekend, I've been working out more and cutting back on calories (at least a little). I suppose I've reached the age where I can't let ... Read more

I'm having a rough day. Lots of strange things are happening in my life and I'm overwhelmed. I feel like I'm due for a good cry. Oddly enough, I'm not a cryer, so when I do cry, it feels TERRIBLE. My plan is to just keep moving forward and t... Read more

I'm feeling very brave and very scared today. There's a job opportunity that I thought I had missed but apparently they have extended the deadline. I'm going to apply for it, but it's really scary because if I got the position, it would mean t... Read more
