My first day back to food tracking felt really good. Although I liked the freedom of choosing my food as I went for the last 11 months, not having to make food decisions during the day was good, too. Seemed to me I was more relaxed about food, a... Read more

Grapefruit Time
Saturday, November 15, 2014      18 comments

Yesterday while Gwen and I were outside a grapefruit fell off our tree and rolled around. We ran and got it. No wormholes, no big flaws. It looked mostly yellow without much green. I hadn't thought they were ripe yet, but must be. So we cut it. ... Read more
