When my family moved into SW Houston, we had both Kroger and Randal’s within a mile of the subdivision.

A particularly unattractive Wal-Mart across the street drove the Randal’s out. Kroger elected not to repair their 30-year old store and simply closed it.

Always plan your workout before you eat. Not only will you feel lighter and more ready to run or lift, but your body will not be focusing any energy on digesting. Likewise, once the workout is done your metabolism will be higher and your body will be better prepared to process what you put into it.

Metabolism: If you’re not sleeping enough you may actually gain weight! When we sleep, our bodies go through various processes that process and store the carbohydrates we’ve eaten and also release hormones that affect our appetite.

In some areas, the land is deficient in certain minerals. A good quality multivitamin and mineral supplement will make up any deficit but don’t rely on supplements for your full daily requirements as fresh is still best.
