Life as we get older is not like what we expected life to be like in our 20s. We promise we will make time for ourselves once the kids come along. The same person who was always in shape, always making healthy choices, always working out, and finding time for herself was just not who I was anymore.

I brainstormed on how I would make better choices with the healthy goals I had set. To be perfectly honest, now that it has arrived I am not sure what to do with myself. This is where the healthy goals are going to help me get back on track again with Walgreens Balance Rewards Healthy Choices program one step at a time!  I am getting out of … [Continue]
