    3/31/2015 5:52:16 PM, by CLUTTRELL8

    Third start here. Let's hope this one is the 'charm' they keep talking about. 252 I've had 3 surgeries since my last visit here. Fusion and discectomy in my neck. I have some nice titanium screws in my spine. A gallbladder that nearly exploded. And some removal of my cervix to prevent cance... Read more

  • Roomies dog is driving me crazy

    3/16/2015 7:13:54 PM, by CANYON_GAL

    Ok, this has nothing to do with work, dieting or exercise. But I need help dealing with this dog. This dog can be very lovable, but she can also be very annoying. She has chewed holes in my blankets, my hoodie (the only thing I had left of my mom) and she destroys shoes...literally chewing ... Read more

  • I Need Sleep

    3/12/2015 11:00:50 AM, by LDYSABELLA

    I've been tracking a lot of things since I started over again: energy, mood, and self esteem among all the rest. The one thing that is tied to all of these is sleep. I've found the biggest indicator of how any given day is going to go for me is how the quantity and quality of sleep I got the ni... Read more

    It's Monday night which is now my weigh in. I know it's after the weekend and a full day of eating and drinking, but it works for me.

  • What am I Doing Right?

    3/8/2015 8:49:21 PM, by LDYSABELLA

    What's so different this time around? Why am I maintaining and even gaining momentum? I guess the biggest thing is I've learned to love myself enough to fight for me. I'm a caretaker like so many of us are. Someone pointed out that I needed to evaluate my priority list. When I looked hard at m... Read more

    3/7/2015 11:43:20 AM, by CANYON_GAL

    Yesterday I walked to work again. I worked in the men’s apparel dept fixing up the display of hats, gathering up a bunch of stuff that customes had thrown all over racks & stuffed onto shelves…it becomes a never-ending activity for me to have to pick up after everyone. Now before you say, that’s you... Read more

  • Upping My Game

    3/5/2015 5:55:28 PM, by LDYSABELLA

    This morning I was writing an intro for the Neon Ninjas team. When asked what my favorite hobbies were, the first thing that came to mind was going to the gym. I would have never dreamed I would feel that way, but I do now. I really enjoy it. My favorite cardio exercises are currently the seate... Read more

  • "An Innocent Soldier"

    3/5/2015 12:06:21 AM, by BECCABOO127

    A novel by Josef Holub. This is a wonderful book, and it is well worth reading. It is officially the first book I've read from our local (walk in) library. I read tons of library books through my kindle fire, but searching for a real book off the physical shelf is a treat I haven't had in a w... Read more
