I spend part of my day teaching big people about health (my clients) and the rest of the day teaching little people about life (my four children).  Through all this, I’ve learned couple of things: One, neither life nor health are destinations. They are journeys.  And wherever you are on your particular journey is just fine, as long as you keep moving forward.  Two, whenever you’re not feeling good about yourself, refer back to number one.

That’s not good considering we use billion pounds/year in the US alone. Did you know that by ditching paper towels you could save an extra thousand smackers in five years?
