Life is all about doing things at  the right time. Knowing when to go, when to speak, knowing when to stop. For me this week  was a test of knowing when to stop… eating.

During the week at work, finding time to take a lunch is often difficult. I  often found myself eating on the go out of “not so nutritious” vending machines and feeling hungry and horrible in just a sew short hours. My body was not getting the nutrition it needed at work.

Since eating at work is one of my biggest down falls I have started to plan and pack my lunch as well as snacks. Sure deep down inside I want to run out to Jimmy Johns (or Quiznos) and eat the best sandwiches and chips ever, but I can’t fight off temptations yet. That’s just me. I can’t tempt myself … [Read more…]

Tonight was the night. The night where I finally pried my(not so small) butt off the couch and kept my date with Jane Fonda. She and I had some serious work to be done;work that I have been putting off for about 10 months. What work? Just the flabby belly and thunder thighs that need to be whipped … [Read more…]
