I am so glad that the previous week is over. It was a tough one. My kids were sick one after the other with gastroenteritis, which is like a stomach flu. Vomiting, cranky, and frequent trips to the bathroom. Finally, it's over!
Today is Monday, also the busiest day at the gym. Did you know that if you want to start eating healthier and changing your health that Monday is the best day to do it? Yup, people who start eating healthier on a Monday, are more successful at staying motivated than if they start on any other day.
