    7/29/2015 8:08:16 AM, by ~INDYGIRL

    I can't tell you how many opportunities I've passed up because I've beaten myself down before I've even had a chance to go for the brass ring. In the past, instead of losing weight, I resigned myself to failure almost every time. I could not believe in myself or be brave enough to face the obst... Read more

    I almost talked myself out of going swimming tonight, dinner and swim time were pretty close together, but I decided that the old wives tale of waiting an hour after eating was just that, an old wives tale.

    Over all my years with attempting healthy eating and Spark challenges, I've never, ever, been able to drink 8 glasses of water in a given day.

    Boring title, I know - but my blogs are probably going to be kind of run of the mill for the next few days or so.
