I've managed to get off the plateau that I've been stuck on for the past few weeks. I tried a new meal plan from Happy Herbivore and it did not work well for me. It was too high in carbs and too low in protein for my needs. I had a look at my tr... Read more

It started on Sunday. We hosted a Christmas potluck at our house. I ate a light breakfast and lunch because I was saving myself for dinner. I ate a ton of everything and man, did I pay for it. I felt so gross that I hardly slept that night. I ho... Read more
