I started Week 4 of the C25k on the weekend. I've been struggling with it. I couldn't really finish the last 5 minute run. I took a break on Sunday (went on a long walk instead) and back a the run on Monday evening. Still couldn't quite do it- h... Read more

A few thoughts here: - I weighed in for our workplace weight loss challenge. This is post-breakfast and in clothes. Weight was 201.2. S&@!!!T! That was my worst fear, to get over 200. - I ate like crap last spring and never got more ... Read more

Tuesday, January 05, 2016      4 comments

I joked the other day that I should just resolve to gain 30 lbs and have a really messy house- maybe then my real resolutions would happen. But seriously, I was disappointed that 2015 wasn't my year. I mean, it was a good year, and the bigg... Read more
