Tuesday night I slept really, really well and only heard Iggy on…

I can't restrict calories too far or that will blow up in my faceI need to find some serious motivation because of the fact that I am fat and feel like crap is not doing it.  As I was typing this something just hit me (again). In the past, when I've become seriously invested in exercise it is because I had something I was working towards. Someone years ago wrote that if you have to be working towards something and not against something else. Truer words were never spoken for me. I need some extrinsic …
