How do you handle people who sabotage your efforts?

I’m all about personal responsibility (a little too much, according to some), but reality is that not everyone is always supportive of us. How do you handle people who sabotage your efforts?

Quote of the day: Larvets are totally the new rice cake

I left a comment on the Bloggess’ post today. And then I read I might win some of these because I left a comment. Can I take the comment back? 9 calories or not, I think my kids will be the benefactors of these babies if I win. I have a rule about not eating […]

I: Baked a loaf of homemade bread (smell wakes the kids up better than an alarm clock) Prepared dinner (vegan lentil shepherds pie) and started cooking it in the slow cooker to be ready this afternoon (house […]
