Complaining – an emotional cancer habit

Happy New Year! 2018

Happy New Year! Let’s begin with a thoughtful healthy and fit mindset as we start into 2018. Sexy is the New Healthy!

Add Accountability to Your New Year’s Resolutions

Add Accountability to Your New Year’s Resolutions The common social activity when January 1 rolls around is the feeling of “new hope” or the ability to “start again” with a new resolve.
