Yes, we are in the month of June. That means we're halfway through the year. (Sounds crazy right?) How are you doing on those health and fitness resolutions you set 6 months ago?

Setting goals for how many steps you want to take throughout the day is a great way to meet those health and fitness resolutions. But how do we take the steps (pun intended) to ... Read More

1. You won't always be as motivated as you were when you first started. Motivation has its good and bad days. They key is to keep putting one foot in front of the other even when you don't feel like it. Remember it's a lifestyle, not a momentary fad.
2. Progress won't always be linear. Just like life has its ups and down, your fitness accomplishments do as well. Stay the course and don't get discouraged and defeated when you notice a zig zag in your results.
