Somewhere, a young kid was fascinated with bridges. He may have built them out of sticks and his mom’s sewing thread. Those stick bridges sucked but eventually went to a school where they gave him the math to make real bridges.

-Don’t work out sometimes. Do at least 180+ minutes of working out each week.
-Don’t eat “pretty good.” Eat 3 or more dinner-plate-sized meals that are at least 50% veggies each day. Have a treat meal twice a week.
-Don’t “try everything.” Ask a professional “Can you help me solve this problem? Please show your work.”
Email me if you want some help.
