It's June...and I think it's time for YOU to say "I do!"   Do you?
        More couples get married in June than any other month of the year. They walk down the aisle and exchange vows. The "in sickness and in health" vow, the "till death do us part" vow... man, oh man, you have to make a lot of promises to the one you love before they say, "I do!" And when that special person says I do to you, your heart goes aflutter!
        Many couples renew their wedding vows on their silver or golden anniversary. Isn't it about time you walked down the aisle alone and get married to yourself again? Yes, marry yourself, and make promises and vows to YOU! Promise yourself you will really try harder to avoid sickness and to perfect your health. How do you avoid sickness? By creating a healthy lifestyle for you to live by, focusing on the healthy foods you must feed your body to ward off so many diseases, and exercising between 45 minutes to an hour a day every day! Movement is a must to help you look and feel your best! Promise yourself you will persevere with gusto to keep seeing the results you've dreamed of seeing.
        You must make a vow to find balance in your life with your family, your job, and your friends. You have to vow to find time every day to relax and have some quality time by yourself, thinking about what you want out of this thing called life. You have to make a vow to be patient. We all want everything in a hurry these days! ATMs make it quick to get your hands on cash, and fast food restaurants make it easy for you to have instant grub, but your health and your weight loss don't come fast. They take time! Many of you have tried the quick, fast fixes, only to find you've wasted your money and may have done some permanent damage to your body.
Now, you know I have a recipe for help you stay on track this month...

        So try my recipe...and think about how you've done the first 5 months of 2016. Did you lose weight? Did you strengthen your heart and lungs? Did your toning routines make your muscles firmer and your bones sturdier? Were you really on program the last 5 months, or have you gone off and on your program for the last 5 months? And what can you do differently to assure your success in the next 30 days? Make time today to plan this month out carefully, and each day of this month, say I do to you!
Do I believe in you?  I do, I do, I DO!
