This week's FFF challenge is about giving up a processed food. I've been doing pretty well at avoiding packaged stuff except for the odd Lean Cuisine pasta dinner and the "fake meat" products that I eat. The Lean Cuisine dinners are my go-to whe... Read more

I am very grateful to have my confidence back. It's been very cold and we've had a lot of snow here lately so I missed a run on Friday. Yesterday I headed out for a walk to check on the path where I usually run. It was in very good condition so ... Read more
