153.3 Yesterday good choices: I put off getting something from the vending machine for so long that I got nothing at all. I decided that finding a drive thru with the chocolate I craved was too much of a hassle, and went home and ate one s... Read more

I started the day with the hairbrained idea to get 120 minutes of exercise to help propel my Fall 5% Challenge Team to the destination. I thought I'd walk away from home for an hour, then walk back home for an hour. Problem: restrooms. None... Read more

155.8 Yesterday was an ugh-ish day. I started my day with too much glowing screen. The world needs to wait; I need to tend to me. Then I had to stare down treats at work. The treats won. I didn't sleep well last night, so today is be-gentl... Read more

I weigh about 154 pounds today. The stupid scale wouldn't sync. I despise being so dependent on technology. I have enjoyed the last few months (maybe more) of being able to step on the scale, and it syncs to a historical record as well as ... Read more
