Hello! This blog is being discontinued. With my NEW weight loss journey on the horizon, I felt it was only right to start with a brand new home. I hope to see you there!


Dr. Gave the 1/2 Marathon an OK ... and now, It's ON!!!

There are some, who aren't active, don't eat the best and even overweight, who can honestly claim that they are "Healthy", clinically. I was certainly, not one of those people. I was sick, and in dire need of a lifestyle change -as proven by a few of my stats last year. I went to my PCP this week, for a check-up ... seeking clearance to begin my 1/2 Marathon training (the confidence in even attempting such, is a grave difference - alone ... lol) taking place in October. Great news, I'm much better - I got the approval! God-willing and MS-permitting I'll be running my city, like Diddy ;) ~PC
