Don't Wait For January 1st!!!

Let’s get one thing straight:  exercise is not about “burning calories”.  The amount of calories you actually burn exercising compared to sitting and doing nothing is not really that much.  It certainly adds up very slowly when you consider that 3500 calories is equivalent to one pound of stored energy.  If you want to lose weight, focus on your nutrition.  But, while diet/nutrition changes will make the largest contribution to weight loss, it’s important not to ignore exercise!  However, think of exercise as your hormone management, not your calorie burning.
