How’s it going???? I know that this is a lifestyle change and there are good days and bad days. Sometimes, it feels like it doesn’t really matter if we exercise or eat well because the scale doesn’t budge or we’re just tired of prepping meals. Sometimes, we feel so burned out that we just want to eat a cookie!!! Can I get a witness!?!? I know I have those days. In those moments, you have to persevere and remind yourself WHY you’re doing this. This is more than just for vanity. We have to educate ourselves and learn about the growing trend in GMO’s and processing of our foods that are killing us. We can’t just bury our heads in the sand anymore. This is a lifestyle change to help us live longer and to become an ambassador of health and wellness to our communities. This is bigger than you wanting to lose a few pounds. We are getting healthy to break the cycle of obesity in our families and communities. Let’s break the cycle of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc….These illnesses are preventable by eating the right foods. So, while it might not happen overnight, each choice you make makes a difference for your future and for the future of those you love. Hang in there!!!
