Thank you for reading my BLOG and sending your comments. I have started the training for the 5K running and today is day three of my first week. I have not gotten out yet but will be headed out shortly after my hubby get home from his PT job on the side.

Have a fantastic day

I'm fine with whatever you decide to do with the team. It just seemed like you were trying to get it going and I know how discouraging that can be so I've tried to be more active on it. emoticon Maybe email the team and let them know your thoughts? Hope you have a great day, too! emoticon

Hi there! Sorry I never responded to your comment on my blog and question about the Year of No Sugar. The book was good, some of the bibliography material is on my waiting-to-be-read list. I think the book is useful to help readers think about how much sugar is consumed unknowingly and what we, as consumers, can do differently (mostly cook meals at home) to cut our sugar intake. It is a pretty easy read and interesting to see the project from the perspective of the Mom.

Hope you are having a great day! emoticon
