Time for a Do Over!

doover

Exactly why I did not commit to weekly postings about my week loss because I was afraid of too many "hopefully I will do better next week". Unfortunately after two weeks of a pretty good commitment I didn't just fall off the wagon I jumped onto a horse running in the opposite direction. I admit it I'm a junk food junkie at heart.

Not only that but it is your typical and traditional resolution. My health and weight loss journey needs to be re-vamped and is long over due. When … [Read more...]
