Working online has been one big practice in getting used to not caring so much about what everybody thinks. That has always been difficult for me because, since I was a little girl, I’ve caredway too much about what other people have thought about me.

Now, if your #cleaneating self is hating on me for this talk of chocolate bacon cookies and jalapeno cocktails, check this article out: How to make clean eating a bit less boring. Note: they don’t suggest adding bacon & rolling in sugar, FYI.

Hope you’ve had a superb weekend.
