Registration for this session has now closed.

Well the title says it all..... We have ideas, plans, wishes and goals. We even know what a healthy lifestyle looks like and the pieces that go into it. We may even make a good start at the changes we seek to make. 

What gets in the way of us becoming the person we wish to be?  This session will lay it all out and help you assemble the building blocks for long-term success.
