I was relaxing last night with my Chai and a stack of magazines and came across something that cracked me up. And, made me wish it were this easy.
I’m on week 3 of cleaning up my bad eating and exercise habits and it’s going really well this week. Granted today is Tuesday but I am baby stepping this. One day, snack, meal, run at a time. Keeping in mind my “Today” mantra for the year. I fell face first off the wagon over the weekend but that happens, I am not going to deny myself wine and cheese date night. Right now I am breaking up my goals into small chunks they are a little less intimidating.
So, back to what I was talking about. This is in the June issue of Real Simple.
