Monday, November 30, 2015      3 comments

Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I've written a blog. I don't want you to think that I've fallen off the wagon. Sure I've had slips, but generally, I've been able to get back on track pretty quickly. Over the last year, I've been ... Read more

I'm sure you feel the same way I do today. Tired, exhausted, and a little heavier. The carbo overload from last week is definitely taking its toll on me today, my first day back to work. I feel like a slug. I can definitely feel the extra weig... Read more
