Walk the Talk Tuesday

Finally I can get back on track with this! Being computer-free for 11 days out of the last 2-1/2 weeks made it impossible for me to track what I ate.

Or at least, that's my excuse. But come on, you enjoyed the break from this drudgery, too!!

Not a bad week I'd say.

I think I would find those half days and liquid days a lot harder than the fasting day!
