Day 375 - I got up at 5:45 am to get to a 6:00 am Strength Training class at the gym. I'd dutifully packed my bag and had everything ready to go. Timed like clock work. 1 hour work out. [...]

Day 374 - Let the holiday shopping begin! This weekend I shopped. A lot. I lost track of time and missed meals, and didn't keep up with my water consumption. Food choices on the fly while starving. Not great. Not [...]
