Exercise Nutrition Results – Weekly Check In {1}

Losing weight, getting in shape, and eating right is not always easy. Sure there are easy parts of it. Some days walking 10,000 steps, eating nothing but fruits, veggies, and whole grains, and drinking a ton of water is a breeze. But then for some reason, the following day always seems to be harder.
