With summer in sight, more of us are feeling self-conscious about our bodies -- and will enjoy the season less as a result. That's according to a new survey commissioned by Anytime Fitness.
76% of the 1,000 respondents said that they feel the same or worse about their body image this year. Another 53% plan to "cover up everything they can" at the beach. That doesn't bode well for fun in the sun.
The Starting Line
It’s was the end of September in 2011. I sat in a crowded room, wearing a size 60-suit coat, dress pants with a 58-inch waste. I sat around my peers, who had all made fitness a priority. Together, we listened to stories of others' successes. I thought to myself, why not me?

Welcome to the New Year! Are you as excited as I am? Last week, I taught you the skills needed to create a solid resolution and the Anytime Health team created a worksheet that you can use to make your resolution a reality. But based on statistics, almost 50% of people will have abandoned or forgotten about their resolution by the end of the first week! In a few more weeks, half of the rest will have forgotten about their goals.

After weeks of eating, drinking, and being generally merry, it's time to start thinking about your new year's resolutions. Another year, and for many, another resolution or two. For most people, the resolution is the same each year: lose weight, get fit, eat healthier, reduce stress, and/or quit smoking. People make these resolutions at the beginning of each year and don't put together the right strategy/plan to make sure that they attain their goals. Changing behaviors and habits takes sufficient planning in order to succeed.
This time of year is stressful for many reasons. Two major holidays in one month is a lot to handle, especially when family get-togethers, food, baking, and presents are involved. In addition, a new year is starting and with that comes the pressure to make resolutions and get healthy. Plus, the kids are home from school and cold weather can make a lot of people stir-crazy. Add all of those things together and most of us have stress levels that are at least slightly elevated.
So, how about some tips to help us relieve some of that stress?
