Fear of Success is NOT the Same as Fear of Failure…But Fear is Still the Point

DAY 2 (FAILURE AND FEAR OF SUCCESS): Weigh-in. You might be thinking that a disappointing weigh-in led to giving up on sugar detox, but my problem is the opposite.

The Real Housewives of Washington County (Illumination Weekly Photo Challenge)

You’ll also never see this in Country Living Magazine. Have a great weekend, friends! Love, Marla P.S. yesterday’s fitness: cardio warmup then weights with Trainer.
