    I listed slow walkers as my pet peeve too. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one, haha.

    Didn't you say you'd gained weight in college and then lost it after graduation?

    Anonymous –

    Good catch! I wasn't trying to leave anything out or be dishonest in any way. I guess I should have included a clause for about a year and a half span of time where I gained weight, as I talked about a few weeks ago. I've since adjusted the post. I think I got so used to saying that when I was younger that I slipped up. I have, however, stayed the same height. šŸ™‚

    Thanks for the good catch!

    What do you mean you don't like kale or swiss chard?! (two of my favorites) I have a recipe for you to try and if you still don't like kale after this, then I'll give up… Kale Chips: wash and tear up fresh kale into large pieces. Dry and lay it out on a baking sheet. Drizzle and lightly cover with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and bake at 375 degrees in the oven for 12-18 minutes, or until lightly crispy but still green and not burnt. PERFECT substitute for potato chip munchies. Let me know what you think! šŸ™‚
