“Bikini Body for Spring?” Now’s The Time

Yep, it’s November and I’m encouraging you to think about what all the fitness magazines will start spewing to you in six to eight weeks.  New Year’s Resolutions and Bikini Bodies.

In mere weeks we’ll be slammed with “how to get the six pack you’ve always wanted” (assuming you’ve always wanted one.  Or, “beach body perfect in 21 days.”  (don’t buy into that).  “Or three moves guaranteed to have you ready for the weekend at the water.” (I’ll bet the three moves I’d give you are different than what the magazine would pick.)  The slop is endless.  Seriously.  It sells magazines and sometimes offers false hopes that YOU or I can be ready for a ‘surf boarders six pack’ in one month.  Don’t waste whatever the magazine costs for five pages of mostly glossy photos and next to no words.  There is NOTHING they will write in there that is magic or new.

I’ll state right now, I don’t usually make resolutions.  And if I do I’m not going to wait till the first of January to do so.  If you want to change something, do it NOW.  Don’t wait till Monday or January 1st, do it NOW.

That being typed, start planning the bikini body today.  Well, okay, I’ll give you till tomorrow cuz I just sprung this on you.  There are some major hurdles ahead.  Christmas delights being one of them.  If you can get through the onslaught of chocolate, cookies, chocolate cookies, eggnog (yuck) and whatever else might find its way in front of you, you’re ahead of the game.  Honest to goodness, this next month or so can be the most challenging.

Don’t, I repeat, DON’T say “I’ll wait till after the holidays are done.”  If you start today (okay, tomorrow) you’ll be SIX weeks ahead of all those waiting for the first day of 2013.  Ya, you may slip up a bit and dip into the chocolate a little, but don’t let that deter you.  Get back on the horse and ride on.

Oh, and about those three moves, email me if you want my suggestions at primalmovers@gmail.com.  I might even throw in a fourth that is so simple, you’ll smile.
