Have you ever started out a new exercise program, meal plan or even decluttering your house with so much enthusiasm that you are sure nothing will get in your way?

Do you eat standing up, or while getting the kids out the door, or while still working on the computer?

If you are like I was, eating while multitasking is part of your lifestyle.

So think about this:

  • How can you really be aware of what and how much you are eating if your attention is elsewhere?

When I look back on it, I remember it all so clearly:

DAY ONE – I was so motivate, excited and committed. This was the time, I was going to stick to it 110% no “bad” food was going to pass these lips. This ti...

Has anyone else ever wondered what happens to the fat in our body as we lose it?

Or am I the only one crazy enough to think about that ….
