2 Week Diet-- Day 6
Saturday, February 03, 2018      2 comments

Day 6 is a fast day. It was not too difficult because it only lasted until 7 when it was 24 hours since I last ate. I ate the leftover steamed Chinese and an orange. Not sure if that is kosher because I can't find my copy of the plan. *shrugs* ... Read more

LOL. As is my wont, I started something else when I am not even consistent with the first thing... I am hoping Thing 2 will positively impact Thing 1. Thing 1 is getting 10 min of exercise for 100 days. I have already used all 3 of my You'... Read more
