Your Turn Challenge Day 7: What are you taking with you from this Challenge? I did it. I wasn’t sure if it would be possible. Its day seven, the final post of the Your Turn Challenge. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be. One small step at a time. Once I accepted the challenge, I made it a daily priority. I gave myself time.

Your Turn Challenge Day 3: Tell us about something that you think should be improved Every moment there are trillions of biochemical reactions happening on the surface of our skin and inside of our bodies. Old cells die, new cells come to life. The cycle of life. These cells live because they absorb nutrients from the food we consume. These cells make up our physical body.
