Thoughts on the Anti-Diet Blog
Monday, February 27, 2012      10 comments

I came across this blog last night when I was restlessly browsing the internet because I couldn't sleep (it's kind of a pity that 1) exercise tends to wake you up and 2) I don't think it's fair to my neighbors/husband to have me doing dance card... Read more
