My body has been hanging onto its fat supply like there really may not be a tomorrow in spite of how hard I've been working to shake it. Well, I CAN shake it, and that's the point. I don't want it jiggling like that anymore when I do! I'm ... Read more

FitBit Flex update - Day 4
Monday, June 17, 2013      4 comments

I'm not sure that my FitBit Flex is entirely honest. On my activity log it says I've taken 12,000 steps, but I'm sure it's closer to 5,000. It thinks I've burned a gazillion calories, but I'll bet it's closer to 500. It is dead-on on the sleep r... Read more

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday! I had a strange feeling today and felt very tired for the first half of the day. When my husband came home he inquired as to why I hadn't showered. Heck, I don't know, I just don't have any energ... Read more

Work is getting busier with this nasty heat (think A/C company in the desert during the summer) but I am still stealing away time for my workouts - indoors, of course! Jillian Michaels DVD's, Yoga on YouTube and Amazon, an elliptical machine and... Read more
