I refuse to let myself get too frustrated with my efforts to exercise! One thing after another has come up. I finally got myself set up and did a good 20 min dvd workout and then I got a bug. The bug went away and I got manic then depressed (thi... Read more

I lost 2.4 pounds in two weeks which is good. The thing I can't seem to get consistent on is my water (I do great for two or three days then not so good for a day) and my exercise. I am trying not to get too down on myself as I still have some d... Read more
