Nothing is wasted

Nothing is wasted by Jason Gray I am not sure why, but this song came to mind today. It got me through the hardest time of my life to date. It’s haunting to watch the video now, a few years later. Such a great song.

Ketogenic Days 15 and 16

Ketogenic Days 15 and 16 The weight coming off has many benefits. Like getting my mile time when running down to 8:30. Still want to see 7:XX for my mile time, but 8:30 is not bad when I started at 13+. Also it’s better than sitting on the couch binge watching Science Fiction and munching…

It seems like just…
