Goals

April 20, 2017 – April 26, 2017 It’s been a really good week. This week, I had one goal set and that was to lose 2 lbs on the scale. More on that later. You know how I’ve constantly said that my water intake has been severely lacking? Not this week. Most days, I got […]

You’ve probably noticed that I post a lot of updates on social media. Some of them are about my current weight loss journey. Others are motivational. Why do I post this? I think that being open and honest is the best way to succeed at weight loss. If you keep your progress to yourself then […]

I’m horrible with keeping habits. I can truly admit that. I start a new habit and then I will stop practicing that habit a week later. It’s a horrible flaw that I have. A few weeks ago, I started making an effort to really track my habits. I wanted to keep a record of the […]

I never thought that I would say that I’m running yet another marathon. I thought I was completely done with them. I will be running Chicago Marathon in October. But I won’t be running by myself. I’m running on behalf of charity. Action For Healthy Kids to be exact. Angela ran for them last year and […]
