No excuses … Week 2

This past week was Week 2 back to healthy living.

It was a challenging week at work. I didn’t just work long hours, they were also intense hours.

I kept my gym bag packed and ready to go in the trunk every day.

I still tried to maintain my healthy eating habits with a few cheats here and there.

Stay tuned.

A time or two I have forgotten a real bra and had to wear my sports bra. Another lucky moment or two when I was wearing a bulky shirt or sweater to work–so it wasn’t noticeable.

This morning I put on my top to wear to work and realized I should have packed a black camisole tank top, too. Crap! The shirt was way too low to wear to work and not seem kinda slutty. But I lucked out–my sports bra was black. So I was able to … Continue reading
