  • Crashed and Burned

    7/23/2016 1:27:53 AM, by WAYFARINGSOUL78

    I haven't weighed myself in weeks, but based on the way my scrubs fit, I'm up at least another 10 lbs. Yesterday I decided enough was enough and I somehow got the strength to start eating better. Today I kept up the pace and didn't gorge myself on food, although it was tempting. I bought a hou... Read more

    7/22/2016 4:13:57 PM, by SARILA

    I have struggled with my weight pretty much throughout my life. I remember it first being an issue when was maybe 7 or so. I wasn't obese, just a bit overweight.

    1.To email the floor repair guy, take at least 4 photos of the old bathroom floor. 2. Before getting the van tuned up for my trip to "Buffalo", clean the inside.

    It has been a crazy busy two days. Yesterday both Zumba classes went well, even considering the gym did not have working air conditioning. I tried to keep the pace pretty low and calm but we still got very sweaty. The afternoon was mellow since my stomach took issue with my lunch from Friday(e... Read more

    Behold my new Skechers Go Walk 3's. Like walking on a cloud. My whole life I have been wearing Chuck Taylors. Which I still love. But they have no support, no cushioning, no shock absorption.

    What is your least favorite emotion? Mine is loneliness. I have never really fit in. There are 2 groups who I understand. They are: 1. Animals. Animals are awesome and if people were like animals, the world would be awesome. They do not care about appearance, race, religion, etc. All the... Read more

  • Your budget is NOT their budget.

    7/16/2016 6:24:27 AM, by RISINGBLUESTAR

    I see this all the time. A lot of people venting that they want to eat healthier but they are highly concerned about the costs. Then there are those people who say they could afford it if they "wanted to." I find it kind of disgusting to be honest. If someone feels they don't make much but the... Read more

    Before I started work today, DH and I cleaned out the fridges and freezers. A whole bin full of spoiled food. He spent awhile binning everything and pulling out the recyclables before he went to the store. (All we'd really picked up last night was fresh milk.) So, I could've gone off-plan and e... Read more
