What are you waiting for?

"I'll start my fitness routine and watching what I eat on New Years day" (oops - New Years day is on Friday). "I'll start it the first Monday". (Maybe you will...) Right this minute seems like a perfect time to make SOME SORT of change... don't let another day go by without making a small change to your bad habits. You will never be able to go back to make changes; so START RIGHT THIS MINUTE!

Something simple like drinking water in between cocktails will help alot!
Run up the steps instead of using the elevator...
Do 20 pushups against the counter top everytime you go into the kitchen.
See how easy it can be? So, what are you waiting for? Val

No quick fixes - just commitment and hard work!

The madness begins..."buy this and lose 10 inches in 10 days".."drink this before meals and watch fat just melt away without working out!" .."Workout for 10 minutes a day just three times a week to lose 5 inches off your waist - in 3 weeks!"

Nothing but commitment, proper eating for your body and consistent workouts (both cardio and resistance training)WORK! It's not all about inches lost - its about being healthy, fit and feeling good about yourself. Play hard - work hard - and enjoy life! Merry Christmas to all!

No - if it's easy, it's not going to work...for long.

"Buy this now and get in shape by Christmas"..."Two pills before meals is all you need to lose unwanted fat"..."Attach to your abs and abs get toned and tight while you sleep"..."I just exercised 10 minutes a day on my new ab killer machine and lost 12 inches in my waist - and still ate what I wanted".

Ok - ENOUGH IS ENOUGH...NOTHING, I REPEAT NOTHING works any better than good ole-fashioned hard work - monitor your eating - and drinking alcohol. If it's easy, everyone on this planet would be fit and why is obesity on the rise?

Do not be afraid of sweating - or grunting while lifting weights ( lifting weights will not bulk you up. STOP WITH THE QUICK FIXES - get ready for the New You - through dedicated, EDUCATED exercise! Join me, won't you? Val
