One of the great questions of life. Today, I don't even know where I'm going -- with my exercise that is. From yesterday's podiatrist vi... Read more
Ch 7, Day 3
I'm in for a rougher day today, no question. I ended up eating some "allowable" snacks in the wee hours of the morning because I was really hungry. I've pulled myself together as much as I can. First, I planned out some lean meals so that I c... Read more

Yesterday's grilled pork with apple chutney was a bust...DH and DS3 didn't care for it. I thought the chutney was decent on its own but really did nothing for the pork....maybe I'm just a "sauce" kind of girl. I'm going to add some cornstarch ... Read more
