Week 9: For real this time

With the hope of dealing with my headaches on the horizon, I was able to focus again on the other aspects of my health. Which I did, rather successfully, if I do say so myself. I had a good blend of meal plan recipes and other non-diet food, but I still did pretty well overall […]

OK. So that’s not really the question for today. But I still haven’t dug the journal out of whatever moving black hole it fell into and I apparently didn’t answer a question on April 14 last year. So as I sit here at work, bored during the usual lull between moving copy and reading proofs, […]
