Nice job on dead-lifting your heaviest! That’s seriously such a great feeling :)

Oh my gosh I need to find Love Beets! I don’t think many Wisconsin stores sell them – they’re hard to track down! Jelly that your Costco has them!

Marvelous is… Meditation Monday! After your recommendation last week, I bought Heather’s “Soul Sessons”. This morning I woke up feeling discouraged and frustrated with my ED recovery so I put on my headphones and hit shuffle; the first thing that pops up is “morning”! Definitely made my day :)

I just discovered David’s tea, and it’s a life-changer! I had one that was something about nuts and cinnamon, it tasted like streusel topping! So good, and I’m glad there’s a store local to me. Kudos on the PR!
