How Often Should You Weigh Yourself?

How often should you step on the scale when trying to lose weight? Before we get into it, how did your week go tracking what you ate and drank? I took the challenge as well to track on my phone and it didn’t great. Traveling across the country to surprise my dad for his birthday probably distracted me a little! So, I have multiple half completed days logged. Today, has been awesome. My goal is just to finish strong today. Then, do it again tomorrow!

I’m curious did the title of this post…

What Do You Dream Of For Your Life?

I have dreams that I talk about. I have a few dreams I keep to myself.

You know the ones I’m talking about. The ideas so precious you can’t tell anyone. Why do you keep them a secret?

Scared if I tell someone I’ll be laughed at because they are big dreams. Scared I’ll be told I can’t accomplish it. I’m scared if I say it out loud then that dream won’t become real, and it’ll never happen. I’m scared I can’t do it and I will look like a fool. I’m scared to give up what I’ve…
