Fall break

I may have mentioned before that I’m trying to re-establish some of the good habits I developed a couple years ago; habits that helped me lose weight and keep it off. For a while anyway. I haven’t fallen completely off the wagon or gained it all back, but it’s so easy to slip back into…
