I was really bad at tracking today, but hey, I took a recipe from a blog that says "healthy" in it. That's something right? I wasn't feeling super great this morning, so the only workout I got was walking to and from the grocery store, but that means 1.7 miles of walking. By the end of the night, I'll easily have 6000+ steps. I probably could have drank more water.
