One Week Later

February 5, 2014

After sharing my feelings and struggles last week, I’ve experienced some pretty incredible days.  I’ve exercised consistently, and I’ve made better food choices.  There’s still a lot of room for improvement, but I’m making an effort to do things differently.

January 13, 2014

After over a week of traveling, I’m finally heading home tomorrow.  I’ve been pretty disconnected from the internet because I’ve been in Oklahoma, and while Dad finally has WiFi at his house, I haven’t spent a lot of time using it.  I’ve been seeing old friends, making new ones and relaxing.  It’s nice to retreat […]
