Be realistic and have fun!

It's Monday morning already and it's December 1! I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. If you are feeling a little on the unmotivated side and not looking forward to getting back into your workout today remember that maintaining your weight now is easier than having to lose a few pounds in January. You will then be ahead of the game and be looking great on New Year's Eve. You may find yourself busier than normal with all that extra shopping, decorating and parties. However anything is better than nothing so whether it's time or frequency that you have to cut back on you can make it up by increasing the intensity. Good luck and let me know if you need any suggestions.
I think we all need a reminder that celebrities have to workout just as hard as we do and eat properly to attain drastic results, but they generally can hire someone to cook for them, wake them up at 5am, and follow them around being the candy police! I happened across this article about Faith Hill yesterday. It suggested celebrity bikini shots come with a warning label. Wow what a great way to put it. How about instead of a warning label a reality label. Now in the article it states that Faith does Pilates 3 times a week and regular workouts on the elliptical. It does not say how long or how hard she work out. So in all reality yes this workout could definately give her a nice body. Remember that everyone is different and genetically prone to looking a certain way.
It takes a lot of hard work to get where you want to be, and sometimes it takes a long time. Know your body type so you can set more realistic goals. If you are 5'3 you may not look like Kerri Walsh but you still have the same potential as everyone else to be healthy fit and beatiful. So don't get discouraged(because someone did it in 30 days), be realistic and know that plastic surgery may be the reason that some people look perfect. It's ok to have some imperfections. Being healthy and fit is the best way to go.
