This is the most important day in anything and everything you do! I had a bad day with food yesterday (thanks to a boat load of burritos & a chocolate cake left for us by DH's aunt). Today is the day after. I had the choice to keep splu... Read more

So I've officially been sparking for a week now. I got off to a rocky start, but that was part of my motivation to come here in the first place. I had been wavering off plan and needed something new/interesting/exciting to help me refocus. ... Read more
