AUGUST GOALS REVIEW Health |FOOD| Focus on clean eating. Check! I finally found a diet and balance I'm comfortable with that fits into my schedule and doesn't require us to make almost daily trips to the super market. |EXERCISE| Keep doing my 30 minute daily walk, try a new hiking spot, and use the 1 free week membership I got from a gym.

Wow, the feeling of accomplishment!" you say … [Read more...]
