I was UNDER ATTACK as well... letting those nasty little EMPTY CALORIE Treats find there way back into my diet. HOW COULD I LET THIS HAPPEN? I was doing so well with substituting the bad calories with good CLEAN EATING food. Was it the busy schedule and the crazy life of being an active mom or was it just plain ol' LAZINESS?
