There is something going on that I can't quite put a finger on. Being that I prefer cardio over ST, I typically start ST with a bad attitude. (What a confession!) Thankfully, however, the attitude turns into a happier one as I get into it... Read more
New Numbers - OMG!!!!!!!

***Physically*** I believe daily workouts have spun my metabolism almost out of control! It feels like I’m doing nothing but eating … all … the … time. And even when I do eat trash, it takes me no longer than two days to get my weight/body ... Read more

I never thought I could ever be the me I am today. Three months ago, I would starve myself here and there to prevent that BMI meter from shifting into Overweight. At the same time, I would eat portions enough for at *least* two people and ... Read more

I'm not an avid beauty fan, but I do what I can with weekly facials and regular to trips to the spa to make the nails pretty. Five weeks ago, however, I noticed this annoying bruise on the 2nd toe on my right foot that both made me go "ow!" and... Read more

Yesterday a woman cussed me out probably the worst I've ever had it. My mind was in another place as I drove towards an intersection and didn't see her and her two dogs. Her temper flared mine, but after a red-hot 15 seconds later I re... Read more

If I could rate my motivation from 1 through 10 (with 10 being me scratching at the door like a dog who needs to go outside NOW), I would say today was......... a -5. That's right, NEGATIVE cinco. But after much crying, whining and drama i... Read more

Food I really botched this one. I "adjusted" my diet around using RealAge's recommendations but after logging in my food here, NO MAS! I realized that I was actually eating pretty ok before RealAge so I'm going back to that. Exercise We... Read more
