Yes, that’s me. tooting my own horn. I am so proud of myself.  I’m patting myself on the back right now.  Oh yes I am. You know why?  Because I have exercised 7 days out of the last 9 days.

I stepped on the scale this morning and was pleasantly surprised with the number that stared back at me. 155.2! I did not gain a single ounce over the holidays. Can I just tell you that’s NEVER happened. Except maybe when I was 7, or something like that. One-fifty-five-point-two. Goodbye forever. My … [Read more…]

I’m so ready for the challenge, which starts tomorrow! So ready. I’m ready to take control of what goes into my mouth and I’m ready for some … [Read more…]

So, how did everyone do over the holiday weekend? I did not do so hot myself. I had a little bit of every dish for dinner, but I also had a few more beers than necessary.
