Workout Progress Report AND A Whole Lotta Salads

November 4, 2014

Usually I share my weigh-in results at the beginning of each month, but I left LA on the 31st without weighing myself. It’s easy to forget when I keep my scale in my trunk! I don’t get back until next week, so my weigh-in will just have to wait until then.

October 6, 2014

This is one of those posts that I just need to write, publish, and get out of my system, so I can move on. I’m actively working on reminding myself of the positives and focusing on the good things, but that’s been hard. Here’s why:
