I just ate 15 brussels sprouts. Yum! Admittedly, that was a large serving, but as splurges go, not too bad. I had kind of forgotten about brussels sprouts. Hubby likes broccoli and cabbage, he eats cauliflower and carrots and green beans a... Read more

Martin has found a running buddy so he ran-walked over 3 miles yesterday, faster than I thought he could do it. I'm really proud of him. We met at Lake Hollingsworth this morning but he was sore from the day before, so we just walked today. I di... Read more
