LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      3 comments

One thing I've learned since I've been living the Sparkpeople way is to listen to what my body is telling me. I used to pay little attention to what it was saying about how much I needed to eat or when it really wanted to move. I would eat som... Read more
