General Health Topic - Getting Fit in the New Year

Hello Everyone,

Yes, I'll have another little piece of cake, Thank You. And an extra tamale as well. Some eggnog sounds good. Margarita on the rocks will hit the spot. I really haven't eaten much, I've just been grazing at the buffet table. I am going to splurge a little... It's the holidays after all!

Sound Familiar?

I know I have a tendency to over eat during the holidays. There are so many goodies around this time of year. I can't get those little "Polvorone" cookies at any other time of the year. I have to get my fill.....Now!

The time for getting fit, eating right and taking off those unwanted pounds is just around the corner.

Getting fit in the New Year. That's the ticket!
