Wellness Program


May Wellness Challenge

This month’s challenge is to keep a food log.  We have done this before, but practice makes perfect. When keeping a food log, track, date, time, and the food you ate.  Also track the fluids you drink.  There are handy smartphone apps that should help with this.  MYFITNESPAL is one if the best ones that we recommend.  Go old school if you prefer pen and paper.  Keeping a food journal is one of the keys to a successful weightless program.
