    Avoiding cheese is a real challenge. It's SO good.


    Workout seems pretty intense.

      Thanks Diana. And you're right..cheese is so tasty, filling, convenient, perfect basically... I'm pretty sure that if I don't have something seriously dramatic happen to me during this challenge (since cheese was my only vice) it will immediately be inserted back into my diet.
