Today has just been strange all around… to start off, I got on the scale and saw that I didn’t gain any weight yesterday despite the Olive Garden dinner on Wednesday. I had the Apricot Chicken thingie… it was good.. not a huge portion like all their other stuff, so I made up for it […]

Milk Drinking whole milk cappuccinos and lattes will use your daily POINTS® Allowance up quickly. Use fat-free or low-fat milk instead, and look for flavored coffees or […]

When we introduced the couch to 5K program on how to run, the first thing I thought of was, “Is this going to flare up my plantar faciitis again?” Have you heard of plantar fasciitis before? It all starts at the plantar fascia — the tissue along the bottom of your foot that connects your […]

These are my True Confessions for this week! I have not counted or logged my points at all this week. Being out of town makes it tough, although I could have done it if I’d tried. I did terrible with my water consumption over the weekend. I am so glad to be home so I […]
