Day 18 Still on Track
Tuesday, September 01, 2009      3 comments

Day 18 continues on the lessons of cleaning the plate. Since this is not one of the problems I have trouble with, I was thinking that maybe another way of thinking of this is to put all that I eat on a plate to begin with. I am one of those pe... Read more
