It is SO easy to set it aside, but make this December the year that you don't let it go by the wayside. Combat cold weather by working out indoors at a gym, going to a fitness class, doing a video at home, or dressing properly for cold weather. Make this year one that you stay on top of your health and fitness regimens. You will be so glad you did.
