ONEKIDSMOM is pretty reliable in making the rocks in my head rattle around. On Friday she wrote about how she manages her tendencies to eat compulsively. It was very helpful in that it helped me reflect on how I hold myself accountable. I have n... Read more

I have gone for some swims and I did a very slow jog earlier this week. The back pain has returned and I have been working ridiculous hours. The two may be related: lots of tension, lots of sitting and driving, very early mornings and late night... Read more
