    Come one, come all.  For over a week now, "Irma-Geddon" has plagued Central Florida and I've lost track of healthy habits. With a new-found appreciation for living with electricity, I am promising myself to make better use of my time with modern conveniences.  I wasn't home for much of the past week or so and did not weigh in.  No idea how much weight I've packed on eating pizza and things not...

For example, maybe you overslept, ran late getting out of the house, didn’t have time for breakfast, and then got stuck in traffic for an hour. Or maybe a different “terrible morning” came to your mind just now.Whatever your version may be, though… we’ve all experienced that kind of morning.And it can...
