A Fitness Resolution stll good for 2011

We had a conversation with the owner of our gym about the huge number of new members they always get in January.  People have great intentions to turn over a new leaf and lose weight or just get healthier.  Unfortunately, it is typical that most of these members fade out of the picture by Spring.  Why?  More than likely, these folks were not really committed to their self-improvement.  It is one thing to know what we should do, and quite another to completely internalize it and make fitness our top priority FOR LIFE.

This seems surprising in a way, because the feeling--the high, if you will--that comes with being in shape, looking good, and knowing that for the most part we are putting healthy fuel into our bodies, is incomparable.  So, what to do?  Let us know your ideas for turning a fitness resolution into actual life change. 

We also have to renew our committment each year as we look forward to, and prepare to embrace, the changes that will inevitably take place in our lives.
