The Diet That I Thought Would Kill Me…..

But it actually changed the way I eat.  I have always considered myself a healthy person.  I can run a 5K, I can touch my toes, I can maintain a healthy weight.  You see, I’ve never really struggled with my weight.  I’ve always gotten away with eating what I want.  Until I hit my mid-thirties.  Now, my pants are tight.  And it’s not in the budget to buy a new wardrobe.  So I went on a diet.  How bad could it be?  I found a diet plan that lets you eat a lot.  But I still thought that it would kill me.

One Room Challenge – Week 3

It is week 3 of the One Room Challenge and what can I say?  Well, the room is currently being painted. The weather and a certain little girl’s birthday kept me from doing the side tables like I planned. (I have to spray outside and it’s been raining for 3 days straight.) However, progress is being made, slowly but surely.
