BETTER THAN THE PERSON YOU WERE YESTERDAY

This weeks 'quote of the week' tries to emphasise that a healthy lifestyle should be for the long term and not a competiton. Yes, certain events/ people can push us to do more but your main aim should only to be better than the person you were yesterday.   Hannah x
