Item #1: Yes, more veggies. 2 salads with dinner, at Sweet Tomatoes. They make it so easy.
Item #23: Thanks to my very good friend, Kim, my exercise ball is now inflated to its proper size. It's been slowly deflating for, uh, years, to the point that now I want to use it at home, it was pretty much useless. She offered to come over and inflate it (isn't that sweet???!), but the timing was bad, so I ran over to her house several hours later & now it is done. Awesome! You rock, Kim!
Item #41: Beets ... THUMBS DOWN. I don't care that others said they were bad beets. They were still icky. One step up from tomatoes in my book. Maybe half a step. H tried cooked cabbage, which he said he doesn't like. I never got the final verdict on that, but he did eat it.
