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?

Walking For Fitness

FitnessFriday logoI know things have been a little quieter around these parts this week and while I would have loved to have popped in sooner, it just wasn’t going to happen. Sam was sick this past week so with 50 States events and driving all getting done by me so she could rest, I just didn’t really have time for anything else. When we’d get to our next destination, I’d cook dinner, clean and go to bed exhausted and wake up the next morning and start it all again. I’m happy to say she’s feeling better so things should start returning to normal for me soon. :)


The even better news is that we’ve finally hit some warmer weather and spent the last couple of days walking around warm and sunny South Carolina and Florida.


Next week is jam-packed with events so I’m hoping to get ahead of the game a little bit in this next week!


I’ve been loving the warmer weather, not just because it makes RV life and chores more manageable, but because we’re able to walk around and explore all of these new places we’re visiting. Walking is a great form of exercise and stress relief. While I love an awesome, sweaty workout as much as the next person, sometimes it’s nice to just walk! There’s been a lot of that this week and I’m definitely not complaining.
