  • Getting my self going.

    6/24/2016 5:25:08 PM, by LEXGETTINGFIT

    I always have the best intention but some times things just fall in between the cracks. NOT THIS TIME. These past few days I have really been keeping with it. Even though I'm starting off really simple, I make sure to at least go for a 1 mile walk, or do some low cardio work outs in my living room, ... Read more

    6/24/2016 2:42:12 PM, by HALFTWO

    It's almost been a week since I logged back on. It has gone well in some ways and not in others. It's that old idea that if I can put on five pounds in a long weekend, I should be able to drop ten in a week of behaving myself. But that wouldn't be true, even if I were adhering to a stri...
