Like it or not, the Holidays are coming!!

We are now almost half way through September. Next month will bring Halloween, the month after is Thanksgiving, and then Christmas. Now is the time to start getting your body and health in shape for the upcoming months. They say it takes 21 days to make a new habit. Every year I have friends who make resolutions on New Years to get healthy, eat better and exercise more. Well how about starting now?

If you simply workout once in a while, make it a habit to go to the gym twice a week. Walk three times a week, fast, for a half and hour. Eat lighter, have less meat, and more veggies with your meals. Maybe even replace your lunch sandwich with a salad twice a week. You may not lose 10 pounds by simply doing these things, but you won’t gain weight either. And you will be ready to take on all those Christmas cookies and parties with a stronger will. They won’t just jump in your mouth and onto your hips without you even knowing.
