Dieting Failures in the Middle of Your Success



Let me start by saying that my food list for both these days is going to be very long.  So right off the bat, you know we have a problem.

I visited my little brother this past weekend and had an absolute ball!  Thanks little bro! We went to a real estate seminar and left feeling so pumped about our life and our goals, it was awesome.

As you know, I am still in the midst of the 90-Day Body Revolution Challenge and I was super nervous about getting my workouts in and eating right during this trip.
