Often times when people set health and fitness goals they cut out every single food that was bad for them. Usually that doesn’t work. Instead, pick one food that you know is bad and cut that out. Keep at it and then add another bad food on top of it. Sort of like a snowball effect.
If you have a significant other, it is crucial to make time for them in your life. A relationship is the foundation of everything a life is built on and if you have one, make sure you are taking the time to nurture it.
This is just crucial. You should be drinking half your body weight in ounces of water every day!
