I don't think I've ever done anything with purpose for 70 days. That in itself is cool. I'm eating smarter, more thoughtfully. It's what I hoped to accomplish and hope to keep up for good.... Read more

We went out to dinner tonight and I did fine. One of my favorite places, Longhorns, where I can get a variety of foods I would not cook at home. Mostly nice beef. We are not big meat eaters, but every once in a while I need to be a carnivore. ... Read more
