Otherwise I'm in pretty good shape and I've lost 15 pounds last month. Had a scare last month when my regular mammogram showed up abnormal, but another specialized mammogram and ultrasound showed up negative.
The hardest part in keeping fit and healthy is that I HATE to exercise and I have a hard time drinking lots of water.
Rarely drink alcohol - my biggest vice is chocolate (any kind) and pizza... two things among others that I've given up for Lent.
If you drink Earl Grey tea, you might like Bigelow's Earl Grey Green Tea. It's got that natural oil of bergamot flavor, which makes it taste less green tea-ish.
I like iced teas, also...unsweetened...with a piece of fresh mint (my favorite) or slice of lemon.
As you probably know, a bit of dark chocolate can be good for you, evidently. I usually eat a small piece of Dove dark or a bite of good single-origin chocolate every day. Helps take care of sweet tooth but less calories than cookies, etc.
