– Recovered another dehydrated pound. Instead of mourning pounds coming back, I can choose to celebrate that my body is healing. I ate seconds of ham at dinner; I'll chalk that up as healing also, LOL. But food was on plan since I otherwise wimped through the day, CREDIT moi.
The kids loved their Easter Baskets - what's not to love about a mango, pear, orange, kiwi, Ugly Fruit, artisan chocolate bar, and controversial mulch. Much discussion about whether cocoa mulch kills dogs, cats, and small children - on the Internet there's reports of any and all of the above. Home Depot advertises with their
cocoa mulch that they do not, never have, and never will sell products that kill dogs, cats, and small children - which immediately goes into the section of my brain labeled Caesar is an Honorable Man

sounds like health magic. Have a nice weekend.
– Kudos for choosing the path of equanimity. I, too, have slipped from absolutely
three snacks a day to only
the evening fruit with the other two in reserve for unplanned situations. Wish I could report that this has caused my last few pounds to effortlessly fall away.
- Tell us more about the heirloom beans. I once saw heirloom dried beans for sale on-line of amazing variety - and amazing prices, LOL. 4.5 hours out and about in 98 degree F temps can be exhausting.
