Week 5 Health Challenge Update and Happy Post-Friday!

We made it through this 4-day week! Is it just me or whenever it's a holiday weekend and we get a shorter week, it almost seems just as long or even longer than a regular five day week? Confession time... So I had a couple of cheat meals this week... I went out to dinner ...

My Health Challenge: Friday Check-In

I weighed myself this morning and I am down another 2 lbs! I can't believe it. I honestly didn't think I'd lose anything this week; I had eaten a lot last weekend due to birthday celebrations. I still tried to stay away from high carbohydrate foods, but I did allow myself to cheat with some ...

My Last Dessert… Weight Loss Challenge to Ensue

That ice cream was so fricken delicious. I savored it as Kit Kat attempted to nudge her way in under my spoon arm to get a lick of my delectable dessert. But her annoying persistence did not take away from my enjoyment. So I finished about half the pint. I'm not going to let myself ...
