  • What the heck is wrong with me?

    7/30/2014 5:38:59 PM, by ANGELN325

    I've been so tired this week. I barely got my strength training in Monday, cardio didn't happen yesterday, and the most I've done with my abs is just suck my stomach in throughout today. I thought maybe I wasn't hydrated enough, but took care of that issue. Still tired. Thinking I'm going to go to b... Read more

    7/30/2014 2:53:11 PM, by BEARWHISPERER

    ok, So I don't diet - that only makes me gain weight, but my eating reasonably healthy is not helping me to lose weight so I guess I have to try something new. I definitely need to get more fruits and veggies in and I've been doing that the last two weeks. What I do need to do is to come onto spa... Read more

    7/30/2014 1:15:23 PM, by ECONLADY

    I didn't call the vet. He perked up after the walk. He doesn't have some big symptoms so I gave him a reprieve. We tried to walk today, but after about 5 minutes the limp got very bad. I checked his paws but nothing was in them. He's home resting. I guess I should have said it, I know my do... Read more

    7/30/2014 11:58:12 AM, by FELICIAKS

    I'm thinking of taking two weeks, if not three or four off. No money to paint, etc. at home, but am thinking that time away from work might get some people to see how over-worked I am. And the other tech that my boss supervises took one week off already, right before I took one week off, and now i... Read more
