Not me. My eleven year old son. Went outside yesterday to ride his bike. Came in after a while holding his arm and walking to his daddy. Told him that he thought he dislocated his wrist. Not a tear shed. His daddy took one look and told hi... Read more

I really need to walk more. Today, I am going to aim for 45 minutes minimum. I have lost one pound on this challenge so far. That is encouraging although not a lot. At least I am seeing the scale move. I realize I really need to focus on so... Read more

I have been faithful to log my food. It shows me what I need to back off of and what I need to eat more. It has been a good thing to log everything. I have been exceeding my step goals so I am very pleased. This is just day three but I am g... Read more

It has been a long time since my last blog post. I really want to get in a routine of writing but always gets sidetracked. I truly believe writing is great for the soul. It helps get my feelings out where I can actually see them. It helps wo... Read more
