Mindless overeating is a huge stumbling block to sticking to our weight loss resolutions because it’s habitual. We do it over and over.

It is often so much easier at the beginning: there's the rush of enthusiasm, and many of your responsibilities are not yet ramped back up to full speed from the holidays. But, a few weeks later, the spark of enthusiasm is gone, routines return, job and family responsibilities rise to normal levels...and consistency can waver. If you’re in a fitness routine in the new year, congratulations. You should be settling into a routine that allows you to live your life while making it better through fitness.
