A lot of people think exercise has to be really hard or a challenge, and although getting your heart rate up and building muscle requires work and is beneficial to your body, getting moving doesn’t have to be like that.
My rising resting heart rate is like an alarm that alerts me to the poor environment I'm providing for my heart.
Tracking your food and analyzing the results are steps you can take to ensure you're moving towards a healthier lifestyle that will naturally encourage your body to drop the extra pounds.
