Tell us a bit more about your blog and your goals for the year:
My goal has always been and will be to reach as many people as possible with my message. To help children and their families maintain a healthy lifestyle. These days people get so “busy”, we forget that exercise and nutrition will help fuel our quality of life for the rest of our lives. Our children learn these habits at a very young age, so the more we do as parents to increase their health, the more they will take these changes and apply them to their lives and the lives of others.
