    10/24/2014 7:39:29 AM, by SHAWFAN

    Yesterday was a very busy day, and I didn't get a chance to post. I did, however, get the chance to exercise for 30 minutes. So I got a workout in, and worked on it throughout the day with every chance I had. Today, I'm starting with a 20 minute walk. Will get to the gym this evening, if all go... Read more

    10/24/2014 6:54:07 AM, by GRAMCRACKER46

    A quick 9 day trip from home in Florida to Illinois and back left me 2.4 lbs heavier. Some of it of course is from not tracking and poor choices, but also some is water weight from driving/sitting for hours. So today I am wearing my pedometer and will do an aerobic dvd before breakfast. Weight be... Read more
