  1. I should attempt to use my grill this summer (first year I’ve had one, it’s a hand-me-down)! Idea: take it or leave it… how about a Questions From Our Readers feature? Because I have a couple.

    1) Besides the changing numbers on the scale, what other physical benefits are you noticing? Better sleep? Digestion? Stamina? I get frustrated when I don’t see the weight coming off quickly, so I’m trying to remember there are other GREAT reasons to keep working out and eating well.

    2) Snacks! What are your grab-and-go options? What do you choose when you want something NOW (to keep from grabbing the bagel in the break room, ya know?)

    Love you tons, as always… y’all are AWWWWWSOME!!!
