  • ***update***
    I didn't do well this week AT ALL. I am guilty of partying Saturday night (lots of beer! ) and sleeping a lot this weekend.

    I'm going to join the YMCA this coming weekend (5/10) so I will make up for this past weekend.

    Haven't done a 'weigh in'...I am waiting until the 7th.
