A Book and A Full Body

Yesterday started with the usual oats and eggs.


I also started the day reading Melanie Shankle’sNobody’s Cuter than You”.


Oh, you guys, I love this book already.  I’m on Page 16.  I love the way Melanie writes. It’s as if she is sitting with me, having a cup of coffee and telling me her story.  We are already friends and I’m on Page 16.

I also love the book because it made me think of all the friendships in my own life.  So much, that at Page 16, I put the book down and grabbed for my journal.  So many memories were flooding my brain and I wanted to write them all down.

It’s kind of sad how details start to get blurry.  I don’t want to forget.  I was moved around quite a bit so it’s kind of sad that I can’t remember some of the names of friends with whom I have fond memories.  Even more reason to start writing it all down before names and moments get even more distant.

Gym Time

We both felt really good in the gym yesterday.  I did a full body workout.


It was one of those really great days where my mind and body were on the same page.  Everything felt good.

Hope everyone had a fun Friday!

P.S. Today is Saturday, Day 7 of #runningfromsugar!  We made it ONE WEEK!


If you are struggling, know that you are not alone.  Sugar withdrawal is no joke, but we can get through it.  Tomorrow in my Linky Party post, I’ll share how I am getting through the withdrawal and I hope you will too!

Happy Saturday Folks!


  1. I was doing and feeling pretty good until today: I think the withdrawal has realized it hasn't had any yum yum sugar for 6+days and has decided to kick up the withdrawal feelings. Feeling a mind body disconnect today

    1. Hang in there, Tammy! Keep a book...paint something.. You can do it! Sugar is NOT the boss of you! :)
