Woke up this morning to find I gained back all the weight I lost since joining the Camo team. I did quite a lot of after-hours stress eating. On the positive side, none of the food I ingested was junk food, it was healthier stuff. I am meetin... Read more

Haven't blogged in a while, but have to vent my frustration over the Target dress ad flap. The store insists it was an innocent thing, but in my opinion it only shows how insensitive people are to the plight of people struggling with being over... Read more

I am so proud of myself for completing the virtual 5k yesterday; was not sure I could do this distance after going so long without distance training. I guess there was some transfer from my usual spinning and elliptical work. I do treadmill wor... Read more
