Look at life's big picture and stop interfering with your own happiness. Don't block your own happiness by staying caught up in anger or bad feelings. And you have to make decisions about this for the long run: will a short-term gain be worth a longer-term loss? Or vice-versa?
Put a Lid On It:
Pickled beets in process. Nom nom nom! Layer any hard root veggie--turnips, beets, rutabagas--in the crock pot over night with a puddle of water in the bottom on low overnight. Then cook any way you like.
FINALLY back to running and planking. Down 19 pounds.
