Second Jump Start – My Health Journey

I am still working on my health journey, but I have lost focus... especially in taking pictures of meals and reporting... and even in tracking every morsel, calorie, and mirco-nutrient.

Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress

I am working on "wealth."  Health seems to be ever elusive.  I do know that it's all in my choices.  I was all set to eat more salads and then the Romaine lettuce scare took all the lettuce and pre-chopped salads out of the stores.  It makes it real hard to eat a salad a… Continue reading Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress
