one more day…

The last day of Whole30 month 1!  I am so happy to be at this end of the month.  I've definitely had ups and downs this first month.  Started out strong...too strong apparently and wound up reinjuring my knee.  That recovery is taking a little more out of me than I expected.  Then again it …
