Maybe it’s in my head - but I already feel so much better (despite being super sore from my workout yesterday). More energy for sure. I’m attributing that to WAY more water than I usually consume and eating healthier meals for sure. ... Read more

It's EASY to sit on the sofa, watch tv, get sidetracked, eat the first thing you see (junk), and more.....but the RIGHT thing to do is to get moving, prepare meals that are healthy, stay focused and make lists and mark them off. I vow to DO THE... Read more
