Everything is going according to plan. It's been a busy month for me, but I'm trying to keep up and on track with everything. I’m looking forward to the end of this month and the final weigh-in.
We are closing in on the end of the program, which is crazy because I feel like we just started. This program has given me a better understanding of who I am, what I can accomplish with the right tools, and what my new lifestyle can grant me. I hope to see another round of Live Better Fit next year with new participants, because it has completely changed my life for the better.

Man, it’s been a ROUGH week. So on Tuesday I had major dental work with the removal of a molar. There was a slight problem in that my cheek and lip we're numb, but my gum wasn't, so I felt EVERYTHING. It was a traumatic experience. My diet has changed because of the dental work, and I’m in pain constantly. I cannot fully workout until next week, and I'm still trying to do some light workouts, but it's difficult because I don't want to cause complications. I’m pacing myself, and I...

So it's a weird thing to say, but my thighs don't rub together anymore. Ha! I’m building muscle mass, and I’m the strongest I have ever been in my life. I can see a lot of change in my body. Since I've started jogging and increasing my weights, my knee is swelling more, so I have to be careful and wear my brace. I’m probably going to start wrapping my knee and actually taking decent leg rest days. I realized yesterday that I go to Planet Fitness one day and walking the next equal...
