Having a hard time lately. Could possibly be due to my life being turned upside down with all that is going on. The good news is that I have been continuing to make healthy food choices through all of the stress. I also haven't touched a drop of alcohol since I quit nearly 3 months ago. The not so good news is that I haven't been getting to the gym to exercise and I am back to drinking diet soda. There. I said it. I am strong and can overcome both things with a bit of a push. Thankfully I am getting some daily exercise because of my dogs. They live for their walks and I would never ever deprive them. And we take some really great, long ones. Getting to the gym is something that I must make a priority. I could easily fit it into my schedule after dropping off my girls at school, but I don't. That must change. The diet soda thing is fairly new. I'm not even sure how it started again because I don't even keep that stuff in the house. Maybe it has become my crutch instead of eating everything in sight or finishing off a bottle of wine. I don't know. It's not a good thing, but I guess it could be a lot worse. I've noticed that lately I feel gross and bloated. It has to be because of the diet soda. So it's time for me to cut it out and get back on track. I am proud of the progress that I'm making. I guess we all have our struggles and minor setbacks. I guess if we admit it and do something about it, we'll find that we're on our way again. Right? Thanks for listening. Spark on!

    I have a love/hate relationship with diet soda too. :( I have changed sooo many of my unhealthy habits, but have kind of hung on to that one. I am not sure I am ready to phase it out yet! lol.

Wishing you the best in all your endeavors! You've made great progress!
