Hello Chicks, and Diana in particular. I'm back. I'm sorry for my radio silence, I have not forgotten you or my desire to make better choices for my body. I had many adventures on my trip, including eating so much cake and meat that I came back home feeling really run down. I don't want to feel like that.

My new challenge will be twofold:
1) Just one sweet per day, this is maintaining a habit I had previously done well with.
2) Exercise 5 days out of 7.

I do feel like I have a good shot at maintaining this for the next 21 days because of my current summer schedule. Two pause days permitted.

Day 1: Monday, July 14 -- Just one and workout 1/5

Day 2: Tuesday, July 15 -- Just one and workout 2/5. In hindsight, I realize I pushed the workout too hard on Tuesday and paid for it Wednesday. One does not make up for a multitude of cake in one day.

Day 4: Thursday, July 17 -- Just one and workout 3/5
Day 5: Friday, July 18 -- Just one. No workout. Had to go in to work, and as soon as that happens, my exercise goes out the door.
Day 6: Saturday, July 19 -- Just one. Workout 4/5
PAUSE: Sunday, July 20. Ugh. No workout. Definitely not Just One. Today I did nothing to honor my body or elevate my health. I am worried I made this challenge too ambitious and am setting myself up for another failure.

Day 7: Monday, July 21 -- Just one and workout 1/5. I have decided that rather than failing yet another challenge, I'm bumping my pause days up to three. One chance to drop the ball per week.

Hi Dr. Geri,
So good to see you back on challenge. I will have to figure out what I need to work on the most. Summer schedule and heat has my best habits all out of sink. Sounds like your summer schedule is somewhat regular at this point. Three pause days(1/week) works well for me also. Keep up the good work!

Anyone else up for the challenge?
