the kitchen

Your body is like a kitchen. Lets say you clean your kitchen once really super well. it looks great, but then as the week goes by, you don't touch anything. by the time its a week later, the kitchen is trashed. Now imagine that you clean up the crumbs after your self, you do the dishes one day, and throughout the week you wipe down the counters. By the time the next week comes, your kitchen is not destroyed. Its like this with a rounded out workout program. if you don't do your dishes, your kitchen is nasty. if you don't do your cardio, wts, stretching and keep your fridge clean (aka nutrition) your body wont be healthy. just one of these things alone won't work. wooo let's go do some wts

Hot couch potatoes... why they'd be HOT POTATOES
