You didn’t even wait till New Year’s Day to start working out. You were in the gym, with the place pretty much to yourself, on December 26. You were ready to atone for the holiday “sins” of cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate. You vowed to drink more water and bought plenty of greens. You didn’t even have popcorn at the movies on New Year’s Eve.
I need to ask you a question. It’s a question so critical to your fitness journey that I’m ashamed I’ve never asked you before. It may be the one question that explains why you can't keep our fitness resolutions. It may be the reason why every year you are fighting the same fat loss fight each January 1. It could be the root cause of each new attempt to not eat all the cookies while watching Netflix on Sunday night, to bring your lunch instead of hitting the drive up and to be able to say no to the pizza your son left in the refrigerator.
