Day 28 and I'm feeling great. I suppose it would make for more interesting blog posts to report that this has really been a struggle, that I've had a terrible time...but I'm happy to say it's been nothing but easy. So easy, in fact, that I'm thinking I might just go beyond these 31 days and extend this into... my life.
I haven't weighed myself, but I'll try to remember to do so tomorrow. I feel lighter and more comfortable in my skin.
I'd like to share a recipe from a cookbook I just received for review: Foodtrients Age-Defying Recipes for a Sustainable Life by Grace O.
