Baby Steps: Diet Changes You Can Start Making Today to Improve Your Health
One of the traditional Christmas movies we watched growing up in my house was Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and I frequently find myself replaying in my head the scene when the Evil Winter Warlock's icy heart begins to melt and he makes the decision to change from bad to good. You may not know what the heck I'm talking about, but he didn't know how long his change of heart would last because he was so set in his ways that change would be too hard. Change may seem very overwhelming and daunting... and while it doesn't happen overnight, it really is as simple as taking your first step! Just put one foot in front of the other, and soon you'll be walking out the door :)
