  • step aerobics

    4/15/2016 5:11:16 PM, by SASSYSHEARS

    Found that doing 20 min of step aerobics burn more calories than walking, but my legs feel like jelly. I think a slow build is what I need. Now only if I can quit smoking I think I would have more energy... Read more

  • Stress and emotional eating at an all time high

    4/15/2016 1:32:32 PM, by ONEAGLESWINGS36

    Well this week I weighed on the scale and I gained weight a total of 9 lbs. I believe that my research paper had a lot to do with it since I stressed over it. I started tracking again and I will gain again since I ate more than I exercised. There's no excuse for that. I won't make my weight loss goa... Read more

    4/15/2016 4:44:38 AM, by LIBERTY_JOY

    For a long time I've really struggled with receiving compliments, so it kind of surprised me today when I received one and found I actually liked it. I saw an old colleague today for the first time in a few months and he asked about my health. Then explained he was asking because of "this" and wave... Read more

    It was a beautiful day here in Denver and it is to be almost 80 tomorrow. Friday into the weekend is to be either raining, snowing or a rain/snow mix we are on a borderline as far as what it will do. Either way it is a heavy moisture system that is working its way here.

    Firstly the punctuation ... what is with it? I've seen it in several books lately ... and I guess it is meant to be pauses for dramatic effect? and echoes the way we sometimes say things even though it looks a bit odd. However, the title of this blog is more to do with my decision yesterday to ... Read more

    Yesterday I received two things from different women. The first was a goodie on here which came with a powerful note reminding me of God's comfort from ASOBFALLS (thanks!) and the second was a packet of tea purchased by a woman working with me while she was on holidays. Both were so timely, and so m... Read more

    I'm not sure if you've ever watched a race where the person out in front ends up losing the race; not because they didn't have the ability to win but because they kept looking back to see what the other competitors were doing and ended up losing time (and the race) because of it or in some cases eve...
