"1. You might not think you are eating that much or very poorly but you might be surprised. I used an app called My Fitness Pal to help track what I ate and how much I exercised. I knew my eating habits were pretty poor but…"
"One of my favorite stores lately is "Thrift". Plenty of brands to choose from at a very good price. Obviously you need to take some time and check for defects, rips, stains, etc. You can even pick up some high end items,…"
