We've all paid for a gym membership in January just to cancel it again in February. We've all started a cleanse or a new diet or a ridiculous exercise program just to give up weeks or even days later. Why? Are we all pathetic, lazy bums doomed to never shed those last 8 kilos?
While a New Year's resolution may be well intended, it is rarely realistic. In fact, we often expect to go from no exercise each day to hours. That will never happen. But it doesn't mean that you have to give up before you start. Rather, this year, try and make more realistic, long-term goals.
