    10/25/2016 7:16:56 PM, by CATARINA_CERISE

    I'm not religious, but I love the Serenity Prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change: *The way other people perceive me *The way other people act toward me *Anything about other people *My mental health diagnosis (although manageable with meds) *My emp...

    10/25/2016 9:58:27 AM, by BEAR1991

    After I last wrote, ended up having it "out" with Ricky and I was a wreck. I feel like every time I don't act like how he wants, he just gives up and says whatever. It feels like I always have to be the one to make amends and try harder. So I've decided that if I am going to be okay with him go... Read more

I also knew the stations would be OK as they're all things we do in boot camp. There's no way I could remember all 25, but some ... Read more

    10/17/2016 2:32:58 PM, by BEAR1991

    Well I don't seem to be getting very far on my streak. On the positive side, Saturday was the day I went over, but it wasn't an all out binge. Ate extra but not horribly so I wasn't too upset with myself. Yesterday, on Sunday, I managed to do pretty well. It helped that I slept in, then decided to g... Read more

  • A Loss is a Loss is a Loss

    10/17/2016 9:39:53 AM, by MUFFIY831

    I went to visit family for a few days. Ate too much, but at least I ran 6 miles one day while I was there. It wasn't too off the rails except it was all restaurant meals and high fat and high sodium and not at all helpful for weight loss. But! At the end of the week, a loss is a loss is a loss, even...

    One week ago today I finished my second full marathon. I had been thinking and even asked a friend "should I try an ultramarathon or should I try triathalon.

Every month there's always a gain with tom but even though I hop on and take a look just to keep the number in my head. It's a good reminder to keep my calories in check and maint... Read more
