I will be away for the week at the funeral of my Dear Aunt. I hope I will continue to live in a healthy way in spite of the sad days ahead.
God be with you.

I haven't posted for five days, summer is kicking my butt. The heat, the long days, everything has changed and while I am loving these changes, they are constantly requiring me to make quick decisions about my healthy lifestyle. Weekends have always been hard, because of the spontaneity. I was reading this blog the other day at Prior Fat Girl She said something that really stuck with me. She said you DO NO GET THE WEEKEND OFF from being healthy.... This is not a job. For some reason I have been striving to be healthy for five days and the next two days, I have been struggling. I am not getting stronger when I am fighting the same battles every weekend. In fact summer is alot like weekends. I can't wish it away, I wouldn't want to. So I am going to take the rest of the summer as a great learning tool. So on Saturday, another Fourth of July party. I will have to be creative, but I can make this work. I just need to think of foods that make me drool, foods that won't make me sorry that I am the only one in the room trying to swim against the stream. I have had a lot of food that is healthy and fabulous. So here is to each day, Seven of them, when I skip two days I am weaker, when I succeed for seven days it makes a great WEEK.
