There are a lot of days when little bitty miracles happen and almost go unnoticed. Today one of those happened to me but it didn't go unnoticed. I shouted it from the highest mountain and let everyone know. I am so grateful that I was chosen ... Read more

It's Monday AGAIN. So what does that mean. I'll bet you think I'm talking about starting all over again, following the eating journal, doing my exercises and taking in all the comments from different posts. Ok, that's true BUT today is also o... Read more
