Seven children can do some major damage to a woman’s body. My efforts to exercise were generally thwarted by little bodies climbing all over me. My deep yearning for sleep was rarely satisfied. And my many resolutions to eat more healthy foods were sabotaged by the twinkies in the closet late at night. I find it interesting that billions of dollars are spent every year to research how to be healthy, and the results are always some version of exercise, sleep, and eat right. It is not terribly complicated, but it can be very hard. We need to remember that how we treat our bodies affects everything else we do. It is an ongoing struggle and effort, but we either work on these things or we will pay the price. Your body is with you all the time.
