Karen is right, Jesse. You've done a great job this month!! It was a pleasure working with you. I have no doubt that you will continue with all of the positive changes you've made in the past month.

All the best to you! Keep me posted on how you're progressing. :)

Thanks Karen and Michelle.I had a few setbacks but kept plugging away.I am sure as it gets warmer and as my body heals, I will be testing myself much more.

Workout today was a 2 mile walk in the slush and somewhat cold Minnesota air..though it is warmer than normal..Hitting the gym for the first time since Friday tomorrow..gotta start kicking my ass!

Setbacks and how you handle them are ultimately what shape you.

Success is just the repetition of small things day in, day out. Train hard, eat well, be consistent and you can reach almost any goals you set yourself. Hope your February is off to a great start, regards from New Zealand MF.

Hey, one of my very good friends follows the 80/10/10 diet and also has one of those veggie spiralars you mentioned. Makes raw zucchini pasta with it, too, and loves it!

And who among us isn't jones-ing for a Vitamix?!?! God, I want one soooo bad!! :) Yeah, someday......

How are the tummy issues going for you lately?

Been a lot better,But this week my diet was crap because when i am sick I am different from most people in that I eat more when i am sick than when i am not sick. I think part of the problem may have been eating a lot of fiber too.my body wasn't used to that.Just got to keep tweaking my diet until i find the right combo for me.

I got the spiraler cause one of my prizes last month i got was a raw food cook book so i really want to dive into it and try stuff instead of just looking at the beautiful pictures in the book ;)

What's the spiraler Jesse? Haven't heard of that before, but I'm in New Zealand so some of the stuff you guys have in the States might not be over here.

Damn right February will be a great month. I had a horrible day yesterday so things can only move up from here. Cheers MF.
