  • I reject my former self.

    7/26/2016 3:35:59 PM, by JOYCETROYER1

    I heard this at my yoga class. "I reject my former self." Without judgment, with no shame as to what or who that self was. The mantra really resonated with me and I have said it numerous times in the last day. It gives me peace. The other thing the yoga teacher said was that our immediate resp... Read more

  • Tuesday afternoon

    7/26/2016 3:35:46 PM, by PICKIE98

    My doctor hooked me up with a medrol pack, some powerful cream and I will go there and fill out a form for the handicap placard. When I was in college, I was on crutches after a bad ankle sprain for 3 1/2 months and had just a temporary one. I will need a regular one. I have sitting at the tab... Read more

    7/26/2016 2:05:57 PM, by TRACEEE24

    Each month, I try to write out 10 goals and at the end of the month I can hold myself accountable if I do or don't meet those goals. This month has been rough for me. The heat is SOOOOO hard for me to get past. I haven't been getting my 10,000 steps a day because I won't go out and walk, I haven't... Read more

  • Adapting to the 5/3/1 Strength Training.

    7/26/2016 9:45:29 AM, by NEPTUNE1939

    Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 Strength Training program is a good program; but, with just 4-compound routines; one a day 4-days a week was just not aggressive enough for my goals. So after 1-month on his program I switched back to Bret Contraras' 2x4 Strength Training that has 8- compound routines. 2-a ... Read more

At 1750 per day, I should be losing about 3 lbs per week. Which means 12 lbs per month. So I "should" be d... Read more
