We are all BUSY! I don’t think I know one person that if I asked them how they have been their answer would not include the word “busy”. One of the biggest fat loss lifestyle challenges for many is sticking with it when life gets in the way. I know from my own busy life that being prepared and never making excuses are two of the most important keys to fat loss success!
