Has this ever happened to you? You are at work minding your own business. Suddenly someone brings in a plate full of your favorite sweets and plops it down on the table next to you. All day the sweets sit next to you. Tempting you. Calling you.

Is your workout starting to sing the blues? It’s not uncommon to start feeling redundancy in your exercise regimen; cycling, running, walking, you name it. Especially for those of us looking to shed a few, or a lot, of pounds (and really, who isn’t?) this isn’t unexpected.
