One of our new clients was recently on a car trip with her family, headed to a theme park for a long weekend getaway. She had been planning it for months.
She even put in extra time at work to get ahead, logging extra hours in front of the computer.
Finally, they were on their way! They stopped at a restaurant for a quick lunch, and when she went to get out of the car … her entire body locked up.
Her hips, lower back, and legs did NOT want to move.
She told me she ended up doing a slow shuffle across the parking lot.
Her kids thought it was funny, but she just thought, ‘Oh no!’
That pain continued for the entire trip. She was afraid to go on the rides at the park, and she passed on all of the fun water activities with her family.
She’d already been having some tightness & soreness before the trip from all of her sitting at work, but those extra hours pushed her body over the edge.
Whether it’s sitting all day for work, hunching over your phone, or just plain slouching in line at the grocery store – if it becomes a habit, it can begin to have a long-term effect on your body.

That’s why in the next few weeks I’m going to be talking a lot about your muscles and why it’s SO IMPORTANT to keep them strong and supple (beyond just how they make you look!).
You won’t even believe some of the stats I’m going to share with you!
Because when you feel better, you move better, and vice versa!
There’s ONE thing you can change that has a surprising impact on your health, mood, and pretty much everything you do! It isn’t a workout and it doesn’t involve overhauling your diet.
This sugar stat caught me by surprise… and I thought I already knew a LOT about sugar. 👉 Eating just 100 calories a day of sugar (which is about 25 grams of added sugars, or 6 teaspoons) is linked to 45 DIFFERENT negative health outcomes.
What if I told you there’s ONE number you need to pay attention to BEFORE you start counting calories, macros, or anything else? For many of us, this number is a complete mystery. But once you figure it out, it’s a complete game-changer.
There are probably a few things in your life that you’d like to slow down… But when it comes to your metabolism? Probably not.
