Old El Paso Frozen Entrees for Two – Review

Old El Paso Frozen Entrees for Two

Today, I got home a little early (early enough to run by the grocery store).  I had a few cancellations in my tutoring schedule so I headed home.  Exhausted from the last two days of conferences, I was really craving Mexican food for dinner.  I was ready to go and bury my face in a […]

100 Pounds Gone – Weekly Weigh In

Weight Watchers 100 pound loss

Happy Halloween!  Today is a day where many Americans dress up, walk around to get tons of candy and then sit at home eating that candy for many, many days.  Halloween is not a very healthy holiday!

This has been a very long, hard week for me.  It all started last weekend when I started to get sick.  It started with a sore throat and a headache.  It continued ALL WEEK LONG. I thought it was probably best NOT to workout because I didn’t want to make the sickness worse.  We all […]

Kicking and Screaming – Weekly Weigh In

Kicking and Screaming

Kicking and Screaming! That is how I went to Weight Watchers tonight.  On the way there, I felt like a little kid going to something he/she doesn’t want to go to.  I was begging not to have to go and I heard myself say, “You have to.  You have made a commitment to yourself and you are […]

Putting a Band-Aid on a Gaping Wound
