We are part of the way through the first month of the year.  How is that resolution to get to the gym more often working?  Have you used any of these already?

On December 31st, it felt like an incredible idea to commit to a busier schedule at the gym.  You told yourself that you were going to go at least 4 days a week.  This was going to be the year that you got back in shape.  You promised to eat clean and work out more.

How is that working out for you?

Have you already given up?  Maybe you're trying to stick with it, but it's not quite going the way you hoped it would.  It's hard to get yourself into a new routine.  But it's totally worth it.  Just doing the minimal amount of exercise can help in a big way.  Sometimes it's just about moving.  Then the more you do it, the more you realize you can do.

And yes...it works when you're older too.

The problem is, there's a lot getting in our way.  There are a lot of reasons why people DON'T go to the gym.  In Western New York, we have to deal with weather and incredible food choices.  But when you look at some of these excuses from other people they sound pretty ridiculous, right?

If any of these excuses seemed kind of silly to you, keep in mind that there are some people who have really used them.  Now think about how crazy your excuses sound.  This is the year to stop with the excuses.  Good luck with hitting all your goals.  No matter what they are!
