I have always really hated mosquitos! I realize that this probably sounds like everyone's personal feeling towards mosquitos... but really, I think I have problem when it comes to my personal paranoia of getting bug bites.

So I woke up this morning with an urgency. Today, I was going to start a ‘Healthy Eating Challenge!’ Well, the thought was there and my creative imagination extended just in a short timeframe. I am going to take on the challenge of eating healthy and now the pressure is on! No, no, I’m just kidding here. Healthy Eating Challenge! Sounds good huh? Ok, I am not going to say ‘Diet.’ Why?
