So I'm seeking to live a more healthy lifestyle but that's not the main thing that's on my mind. The main thing that's on my mind ...

Thank you for your kind words on my blog yesterday! Sometimes I forget to celebrate what I've accomplished in favor of focusing on what's ahead.

I hope you have a great day!

Hi there - thanks for posting on my blog. I'm torn between the two sites now. Habit is more customizable and I find the new SP interface confusing. But will persevere! Have a great week. emoticon
