You can't out-train a bad diet

Cultivate optimism and let it drive you forward.

Health is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

We can't control the waves, but we can learn to surf

Turn a setback into a comeback

Success requires backbone, not wishbone

The End of Over Eating by David Kessler: describes how people, places and environment influence our eating habits. Also delves into the mysteries of food science and marketing and their influence our preferences for taste and quantity.

As individuals we are faced with challenges that we can look at as guidelines instead of stop signs. Those who are able to move forward become stronger and serve as an inspiration to others who may be going through similar situations. Love who you are and believe in your abilities. Take risks, push your limits and become the success that you know you can be¨¯`💕

Let today be the day you embrace your beautiful spirit and shine a light for those living in the
dark. Light their path so the road traveled will be seen more clearly. A person whose heart
is saddened by the troubles of this world, the loss of a friend or family member, a hard days
work, or the struggle of provision can experience joy through a simple act of kindness. Be
that candle for someone today and shine bright. -Amaka Imani Nkosazana 💕

Everything we make happen in our life is a reflection of what we believe about
ourselves. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to
ourselves more than we think we are worth. -Iyanla Vanzant.
