Saying you want to eat healthy in 2018 is not enough. What does this even mean? Write it down in detail and be specific.

Where have I been

It’s quite obvious I’ve been absent from posting on my blog. It has been six and a half months since my last post.  Over the last twelve months, I’ve invested a significant amount of my energy and time in the creation of my book. That was not the only thing I was absorbed in. Much…
