  • Why Do You Procrastinate!?

    Why Do You Procrastinate!?

    Why do you procrastinate and put things off? Is it pure laziness? Is it you are not serious about getting things done and getting up and moving? For some people I truly believe the reason they procrastinate is fear. You are afraid you will fail. So if you don’t try you don’t fail. But if you don’t try you also will never succeed.

    Nutritionist In Rockford, MI- Is Your Nutrition Plan Specfic and Customized To You and Your Goals?!

    IS THIS YOU?? ~Working out hard everyday and still not seeing the results you would like? Nutrition is probably your missing piece. Are you following the "whatever" diet? (eating and drinking whatever you want when you want it) Are trying to eat healthy foods but eat these foods kind of randomly with no structure in mind?

    Personal Training in Rockford Michigan, Personal Trainer in Rockford Michigan. I say this time and time again to clients but it’s what I believe in and in my opinion what really works!
