I have really been struggling to get back into things. I really want to, but it's always something keeping me down. I was on vacation, gained some weight (but it was vacation so I'm trying not to beat myself up), then I just had a very lazy week... Read more

I will be honest, I am REALLY struggling to eat right, and to stay on track. The exercise I am doing. I have found that if I talk to my Mom or Stephanie, I don't work as hard. But if I put on the headphones and go with the beat of the music - I ... Read more

Well, after much frustration and discouragement and asking for help (Thanks my fabulous Hot Chili Peppers!), I have re-evaluated. I have gotten lazy. I have started slacking and it's time to get back into gear. I have done fine on my cardio but ... Read more

Well, I haven't gotten to weigh in the last two weekends, so this week I was really hoping to see some change! I lost an inch on one part of my abdomen, and half an inch off my hips (which is really one of the last places I need to lose it), so ... Read more

Last week was my birthday, so all week I didn't count calories, I didn't worry about trying to get to the gym. I just had a relaxing week, full of friends and family, good food and good fun. I gained one pound, but I wasn't worried. I never beat... Read more
