The Texan and I have become more conscious of healthy living since becoming parents. Sure, we love pizza as much as the next guy, but try not to eat it too often. Making an effort to be active and adopt healthy living choices takes a lot of focus and dedication. With the right resources, everyone can be on their way to living even healthier.
