So how many of you are already off track from you New Year's resolutions to exercise more?  There are probably a lot of you out there.  I too, find it tough to keep up.  Well for those of you that have fallen off the workout wagon don't beat yourself up.  Recommit to building your habit.  That is the key word H-A-B-I-T.  It is not about busting you booty 6 to 7 days a week right out of the gate.  The body needs to work up to that amount of exercise.   Find a realistic and attainable goal on the amount of exercise that you can commit to, even if this is one day a week.  Work your hardest to get that one day a week for a month.  If you make it for a month reward yourself with a new workout shirt.  Now commit to 2 or 3 days a week for 2 months.  When you get to this goal, reward yourself with a new pair of shoes!  Now, we are 3 months in and we are working out 3 days a week, and we go for 4 days a week, and so on.  Over time we have built a healthy habit of exercise, which is attainable and we have developed a HABIT!   Remember we are all weak humans and God has created us that way so if you miss a day don't beat yourself up but make the commitment again even if you have to take a step back.  Great work and find what inspires you to stay healthy!
