It is so easy to give into cravings, to eat when you're bored, to sit on your butt and watch TV. I have to admit, I did all of those things tonight. I was sitting on the couch, chomping on a Twizzler, wondering why I was fat, and watching "I Lov... Read more

Update on my fitness: I haven't worked out in a week, and I spent about 45 min. in the gym today. It's amazing that skipping workouts for just 7 days alters your body. It was so exhausting to do 15 min. on the elliptical, and a week ago I w... Read more
