Gaining Weight?


Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, it’s time to get back on track. If you went a little (or a lot) overboard with your eating yesterday own it and move forward. There’s no sense in beating yourself up over it—what’s done is done.

Make better choices starting right now. Don’t wait until Monday or even New Years. Set one small attainable objective for today and reach it. Do it again tomorrow, and again the following day and each successive day thereafter.These daily achievements will help reinforce your commitment to reaching your fitness goals.

Remember, don’t give up on yourself—NO EXCUSES!

My goal for today is to drink at least 80 ounces of pure water. What’s yours?
