Removed the Forums

November 30, 2008

Just a quick note to say I have removed my forums from this blog. I love the idea of forums as a way to get people talking to each other and being supportive, but they take far more work than I had imagined and frankly I simply had been ignoring them for some time. The [...]


Thanksgiving is Black Thursday for Dieters

November 27, 2008

photo credit: *clairity* As you are no doubt aware the day after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday, which marks the start of the traditional Christmas shopping season (did you know about Cyber Monday, though?).

Two Weeks Under - Book Review

November 25, 2008

Catching Up

November 19, 2008

Once I realized I wasn’t going to hit my goal of posting every day this month I kind of drifted off on to other things, but that doesn’t mean I’m still not here. I’ve got a bunch of things in the fire so I thought I’d just do a brain dump of everything here and [...]

Motivated by Music

November 14, 2008

Well so much for NaBloPoMo! My best intentions of posting every day this month went up in flames on Wednesday, then I had a decided lack of motivation yesterday after knowing that I won’t be hitting what I had hoped was a simple goal - writing every day this month. I also have not run [...]


Knocking Out Some Cardio
