Don't leave it to chance

Having got involved again in delivering Resilience programmes across the UK, it struck me just how easy it is to let each day go by, thinking that tomorrow you'll start 'being healthy'.  Over the years I've gone from being in the gym religiously 4 or 5 times a week, to not at all.  I've gone from watching what I eat to counting the packets of jaffa cakes I can eat in one day.  The reason for this change - who knows?
