Weekly Challenge: Plan ahead at least one of your meals for each day this week

So, I really should have gotten this out to you yesterday, but well, I didn’t…so I guess we are off the hook for one day of planning! Some people do this really really well, but I am not one of them.  Planning the evening meals for my family might just be the bane of my existence at this point in my life.  It is torture and I hate it!  I can never make everyone happy, and listening to complaining after… Read more »

Weekly Challenge: Do not weigh yourself this week.

For some of you, I just gave you the week off from a challenge, since you don’t weigh anyway.  For others, I know you are saying “WHAT!”, but I have to weigh. It is really not necessary to weigh daily, or even weekly for that matter.  I personally don’t weigh myself at all, and get weighed only once or twice a year at the doctor’s office.   I think I am more content with myself for it too. There are much… Read more »
