By Laurie Epps

I don't really know what I had, but I was truly sick for over 3 1/2 weeks. I didn't start to feel a little better until Monday. I apologize for not posting last week. I was simply too ill. But, today I'm back to post a little progress in spite of everything.

Week 4: Feb. 2-8, 2015
Week 4
Last week, I was too sick to even go into the gym at all, but yet I lost a few inches. I hope to not put them back. I know there's some of you bigger girls out there, and I fit into my smaller slacks, that are two sizes below the size that I'm wearing currently. So yippee!

Even though I didn't feel well enough to work out, it did give me some time to do a little research on dieting, and nutrition so that I can maybe begin to see what works and doesn't work for me. Like us all, I'm a work in progress. I'm going to implement a few ideas and write some comparisons in future blogs.

Week 5: Feb. 9-15, 2015
Week 5
This week was doctor week for my little one, so it's delayed me getting back to the gym. Monday, my youngest went to the pulmonary specialist, which took all day. Tuesday, she went to the dentist, which also ended up taking all day. So this morning, I bought a new workout outfit for a little inspiration. Again, it's in the smaller size. This also means that you won't see me in the same workout outfit in every picture. 

For this week, I still hope to start back at the gym on Friday, and get back down to business. I hope you'll follow along, and I'll continue to keep you updated. I'm not giving up on myself, and if you're fighting the same battle I am, I hope you won't give up on yourself either.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Swan House in Atlanta

By Laurie Bower Epps Many don't know that I'm really from Atlanta. Somehow, as I've gotten older, it just seems to be natura...
