sample healthy eating plan and one song workout

9 Nov

to be honest, my main issue, before i fell in love with gym and healthy eating, seemed to be ‘finding’ the time to workout and fitting in the time to plan and prepare healthy food.

what i’ve come to learn, is that if you don’t make time for healthy living now, you’ll have to find time sooner or later, for illness-

try these two small changes for a week- that’s 7 days out of 365. no excuses. no complaints. you’ll just feel better.
