Over weight and growing

over-weight-and-growingWhen it comes to what we put in our body, there comes a time when it is entirely our decision. When we are young we don’t have a choice.

What is hard is eating healthy consistently and making it a priority. That being said if someone was going to cook all my meals I probably wouldn’t have too much of a problem. Although I would like some homemade fried chicken and homemade chips at some point.
