Happy New Year. I hope you had a great time celebrating last night.
We are down to the final 2 - 2011 New Year’s Resolutions. Yesterday we resolved to spend more time with our friends and family. Now today we are going to resolve to...
#2) Get Into Shape
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 34% of adult Americans are considered overweight and another 34% are considered obese. Sixty-eight percent combined – and that’s just adults! Somewhere along the line in our society, laziness became a standard and unhealthy eating habits became the norm. If you’re content with that extra pudge around the belly, then consider this. Obesity and weight gain are leading factors in serious diseases like diabetes, heart failures, high cholesterol and several others. If you don’t feel like losing weight simply for helping ease the burden of the ‘ol belt buckle, then at least consider dieting and exercise to prevent future health complications.
Shedding pounds is like quitting smoking or drinking – overeating is just another addiction, only food and lack of will power are disguised as the culprits. This year, think about joining a gym, practicing yoga, picking up a hobby, eating less, etc. Losing weight doesn’t have to be difficult; in fact, you might even discover a passion for something you never knew you had, and on top of it all, you’ll feel tons better!
If you don't need to lose weight you can still get into shape by starting a regular exercise routine. I am a huge fan of cycling and try to go as often as possible weather permitting.
Stay tuned for big reveal of the #1 2011 New Year’s Resolution.
