 It’s Sunday morning, and typically on Sundays I do all my grocery shopping for the week and plan my meals out. That way I can stay focused on my fitness goals and save a little money as well.

We all have frustrations/stresses of everyday life that get in the way sometimes, but some of us don't realize that they are a HUGE part of our successes in and out of the gym.
