It’s that time of year again! We are wrapping up December and thoughts start to go to what and how we can change in the coming year. As you know, one of the largest resolutions is getting in shape. As you also know, for many, this goal lasts a few weeks or, if lucky, a few months before fizzling out.  I’ve put together some easy ways to get started with fitness so it’s sustainable this year. If you have any of your own, let me know in the comments. We’re in this together! Think about your why This is probably… View Post
