Phew! I am so glad to hear from you! As I was driving to my hair appt. today, I thought of you and said a prayer for y'all. Then, when I got home, I mentioned to my husband I was getting a little worried since it had been a month or so. So, YEA! Good for you for making all those changes...all those good changes! And for taking some time for yourself! :o)

Glad you're back. I am really enjoying your blog!


Hey, it's ok! I think it's healthy, getting away from cyber world. Everything in balance.
I'm in Omaha, I can't wait for spring. It's finally starting to warm up a bit here, I'm outside more walk/jogging and that always helps me in the healthy eating catagory. Keep up the good work, I don't drink diet coke anymore either. I think the stuff makes us crave sweets even more. The first few months are the worst, I'm better now. Amie


I totally understand how you feel!! I figured you were just busy! I always look forward to your posts though! Can't wait for more! Have a great weekend! :)


Everyone needs a break now and then.


Congrats on the "to better health" regime! I gave up my Diet Pepsi "addiction" about a year ago. I had a teeny tiny sip of one a week or so ago and thought it tasted awful. The best tip I can give you for giving up diet colas is to do it cold turkey and be somewhat of a fanatic about not drinking them at all. In the past when I had tried to "cut back" I always ended up drinking them again. Just a thought ..

You go girl!

p.s. Love your blog. I think everyone can understand needing to "get away" from it for a while though.


Glad all is well and your back. Missed you. It's good to take a break every once and awhile.


Hi Allison,
I was just thinking about you and wondering if everything was okay. I think we all need a little break once in a while - nothing wrong with that! Congrats on your health changes. You are my new role model!


Yay!! Ir finally let me comment Allison.
So glad you are back.
Missed you!


Hello Allison,
Its so good to hear from you!Good for you for giving up sugar and excersizing more.You inspired me!I am gong to work out right now.P.S.LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!

I just started a blog of my own MISSED YOU LOTS HUGS ~E


So glad that you're back...your blog is the best!


Agree with Karen 100%


So glad all is well! I have been checking your blog and so glad you are back! Gosh, I too am trying to cut out my sugar intake (SO hard!). I have also given up my diet drinks and trying to just drink water. It's hard!
Keep up the good work on your changes in diet and hope to see you again soon.
Have a beautiful weekend!!

Hugs and Blessings,


I'm glad you're back. I had just discovered your blog and then nothing:) Glad you are feeling better. I know what you mean about sitting around and eating and then feeling worse about yourself. I have gained about 6 to 7 lbs. in the last year and I keep saying that I am going to get it off. Maybe you will become my example. Just a little change here and there and they add up. What type of exercise are you doing?

I'm glad to see you! I had some time this winter where I needed some time to myself, too. Glad to hear that things are going well!

Glad that you are back. Giving up Diet Coke would be a very hard thing to do. Good for you for taking care of your health.


Good to hear from you, dear! Glad to hear all is well. Sounds like you're making some fantastic changes.

I'm glad to have you back, though I certainly understand the need to take a break. Good for you for taking the time to take care of yourself. I hope that you are having a lovely March -- spring is just around the corner!
