Well, it's raining again today - steady rain, but not pouring. Yesterday I ended up with 75 minutes on the treadmill - or 5 miles. Unfortunately the rest of my day didn't involve tons of steps. My total for the day was around 16000+ I haven'... Read more

Yesterday I met a friend I hadn't seen in a bit for dinner and to catch up. We went to a little Greek diner. I explored the menu. My tummy wasn't quite itself so I didn't want to have anything to exciting - and then I saw they had a 24 hour b... Read more

Somedays are just like this. I am not sure if I lack motivation, am lazy or what. All I know is my feet are stuck in the mud. I have been trashing around with the things I SHOULD be doing only to find myself more stuck in the mud. ... Read more

So it's June. I thought at this point I'd be down about 30 lbs from where I started in January. That didn't happen. I've reflected a long time on my journey so far. I was feeling pretty weary. My goals seemed unreachable. I thought abo... Read more

Friday, May 29, 2015      14 comments
