    Hey lady! Thanks for looking at my blog!

    I'm getting better with water. Yesterday was a mess but I had 9 glasses, my highest to date, and cannot wait for today to get started. I haven't had a diet pepsi in a week and it makes me very happy! I'm feeling better and ready to roll forward with taking better care of myself.

    Hugs to you! Hope you have a fabulous week!

    Hey - your use of the yin/yang symbol for your pic as well as your user name intrigue me. Feel free to let me know your thoughts on dichotomy and polarity!
