My BreakUp Letter to Chocolate

choco breakup

Dear Chocolate,

I think it’s time we had a talk. I should start by telling you this is very difficult for me as I do love you so very much…

But you see, lately our relationship has been rocky. I eat a little bit and you make me not feel well. It might start out physical but lately it’s also been emotional. This isn’t okay.

I’m a strong, confident, courageous, beautiful person but lately you’ve been trying to take that away from me. This relationship isn’t healthy anymore and while I still love you, I think it’s time we took a break…at least until we can learn to be friends.

I know it isn’t easy. Trust me, I’m just as upset as you are. But this is for the best. At least for now.

When we learn to get along again, I know where to find you. I know where to find the best chocolate so don’t worry about that. For now, keep doing your thing to help others; keep being delicious and comforting.

When life and my body are ready, we shall meet again but for now, this is goodbye.

With a broken heart,



Any foods that you love that make you feel sick and you’ve had to give up? Any tips?

A Fitness Friday Birthday

AND it’s Fitness Friday, does it get any better?

It wasn’t my best week in terms of fitness. I got to spend a couple short days in LA seeing some friends I haven’t in far too long and it was more important to me to spend that time with them vs fitting in formal exercise so no complaints here.


The RV has white boards covering most of the walls. Last week I wrote this quote on the board by my bed so I see it every morning when I wake and every night before I go to sleep. This is definitely one of those quotes that is so true and that I think we all need to remember more. I’m constantly reminding myself that I can do anything I dream possible and the only thing that holds me back, is when I believe I can’t do it.

In my fitness, in my life, in my health, and in anything else I may dream up.
