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 3: Wednesday, July 16 -- Just one. No workout.
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.
