    I have woken up with a good attitude this morning, ready to take on the day. Thinking about this crazy world and what's going on- we have no clue what tomorrow is going to bring. How many weeks will it be before a public gathering- baseball game, basketball game- who knows? What I do know is th... Read more

    Killed it today! Ate well, got 13000 steps, did the bike, and walked up stairs and my hill a few times. I think I got a second wind. I have a goal set on my refrigerator for each month. Februarys was 219 which I hit. March's is 209. I'm sad because I've not went anywhere. I wish I could say it was... Read more

    The progress I made the day before was "derailed" yesterday evening. Just because I had a few hours by myself, and was watching a movie. I feel my face starting to puff back up. Not because I've gained alllll the weight back, but because the food I'm choosing to eat is making me swell and is junk.... Read more
