Jeez how many times will I have to start again? I have been calorie counting / binging for a while now getting nowhere fast. I do think it was good to see how many calories were in the foods I ate. I actually overestimate a lot on calorie content. So here I am. Ready for another go at this. I am aim...

The bad part of that is I wake up at 4:30 to get to the class and it kills me. so I skipped today. My goal is three times thi...

Hi Ohlala, Funny about the cupcakes, that is exactly what I had and did not enjoy. I can totally agree about the fluffy chocolate deserts, and a few kinds of cookies I can get at Trader Joe's. I also like either dove ice cream bars, the double chocolate kind or Talenti Gelato. Not so good this week....

Back safe and sound from NYC had a great time. On Wednesday we literally walked 9 hours. Had a great time I don't feel I went overboard with the sweets, but discovered I don't enjoy some sweets as much as I used to. I actually was frusterated with that. Went to the farmers market this morning, then ...
