I'd rather be happy

Yeah I could stop eating carbs and take sugar out of my diet. I could drink nothing but water and do stomach crunches until my head burst but I'd rather be happy.

I like having some chocolate after a long day and drinking a diet coke. I like to get my workout over with in the morning and then spend the rest of my day chasing my daughter around. Yeah that also means I won't be looking like Heidi Klum any time soon.

But I'm ok with that. As long as I feel healthy and I'm HAPPY!

And I know a world without chocolate, carbs and a soda every now and then is not one I would want to live in. So I'm willing to settle with this...

I'm not there yet but I'm working on it. :)


  1. GO ELAINE GO! Your kickin butt Momma, wish I had your dedication... And I couldn't ever give up chocolate or carbs either... (or COCOS! LOL) You should be proud of yourself for going to the gym everyday! That's AWESOME!

  2. I feel the same way! No Diets for me either.

  3. Elaine, I gave up soda completely about 9 years ago and I gave up chocolate candy right after Christmas of 2007. It was very hard at first but it became somewhat easier over time. I did it mostly becuase I didn't like the "control" I felt it had over me. About a month ago I had read a report that dark chocolate (my favorite) is actually good for your heart. I had my first piece of chocolate after a year and a half and it was amazing! Long live chocolate!!! See, so having chocolate is making you healthier!!!
