  • 10,000 steps in by noon

    7/2/2020 1:37:40 PM, by AUNTRENEE

Plus I did a load of laundry and a sink load of dishes. Now I... Read more

    I had a good week of exercising. There was a day this week that I didn't have any exercising but I did make it up though. My weight hasn't changed at all. But the weight not changing isn't going the way that I feel. It's my motivation to keep going. I am hoping that I can get some more exercising in... Read more
