I started the week doing a decent job recording my meals via a photo. Then.... it all fell apart. Got too busy with getting the show ready for tech. As tech neared I found it harder and harder to get meals, let alone, take a picture. All I can say is, I did my best… Continue reading Struggling to Eat Healthy with a Busy Schedule
The hardest thing about trying to follow Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat to Live lifestyle is feeding my family.
