How you treat your body NOW will affect it LATER on. What in the world does that mean? Well let’s put it this way… if you don’t take care of your body by making healthy choices in what you eat, how you manage your stress, how many hours you sleep, and how much exercise you get…. It will eventually catch up to you. How do I know? I ignored all of those factors!! I was fortunate enough to get an early warning sign…. I got sick! My body said “I’ve had enough”.... “I can’t take
I’ve been picking at the “diet and changing your lifestyle” theme over the past few blogs. DIET is a BIG word in our culture. My guess is that everyone has done it at least once in their lifetime.
