My eyes are on fire. It feels like little flames are coming out of my nose too. If you need a mental image think of those scary monster movies where the monster is walking towards the main character with fire blowing out after them. All this time I […]
I like to make people laugh and then say, "hmmm." If I have done that then I have successfully changed the way you have seen the world.
It is easy to think correctly, however following through can be an entirely different story. Trust me I know. My mind knows how to eat in a way that would help me get down to a size 8. My taste buds say that size 12 food is better. Thus far, the mind is not winning the argument.
