If you are reading this entry, and you live locally in the Maryland, Virginia, or Pennsylvania area, you have no doubt noticed that today was the very first warm day of the spring. Now maybe you really enjoyed your day, however, there are probably many of you that now wish you were working out during the winter am I right? So what do you do?

First things first, it's time to go to the drawing board. What's your diet look like? How many calories are you taking in today? What is your carb intake look like? On that piece of paper you want to outline a nutritional plan that you would look forward to following. Get the junk out of the house, and get an idea what you want your caloric intake to be as well as your macros. It's time to get serious.

Next, what is your fitness plan going to look like? How many days a week are you going to do cardio, how many days a week are you do weight training? Are you going to join a gym? Are you going to hire a personal trainer? At the end of the day, remember consistency and accountability is the key. It's time to get in motion.

What are your goals? Do you have any short-term goals? Any mid-range goals? And a long-term goals? Make sure that your goals are specific, realistic, and attainable. Keep those goals in a log that you plan to keep in the forefront of your mind and very accessible.

Finally, get it done. No more excuses, no more weekend warrior, it's time to get serious it's time to put the excuses away. Stick to your diet, stick to your exercise plan, and don't worry those clothes will start looking great on you.
