    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    I already do.  Most of the time I do my daily walk with a friend.  I would like to start walking in the woods more or around the lake.  That's a goal I have set for summer.

    Before you started this challenge, did you think you were 'addicted' to sugar? How do you feel now?

    Yes, I knew I was!  Better although it is still a huge challenge to avoid it.
