I wish Fort Worth didn’t feel quite so far. Like, if I could just grab a rope and pull it closer by just 20 minutes or so. (Then I would hit up Beehive more often for under-$75 favorites.) Also, I would love a standalone Madewell, like the one University Drive is getting on Wednesday, the 23rd. Hit up the store from 10 am to 8 pm for Texas map tote bags (which are actually pretty cool–click here and zoom in), drinks, sweets, and the chance to win one of the $20 gift cards being handed out throughout the day. 1604 S. University Drive, Ste. 502, Fort Worth
While on D Moms they’re talking about meaningful, family-friendly New Year’s resolutions, I’d like to bring up the clichéd, single person, I-want-to-get-healthy version again. And no one is more adept in helping us figure out what really works than a person who teaches fitness for a living. So, a round of applause for John Terlingo, the pedaling director at Beyond Pedaling (one of our five favorite workouts in Dallas), who’s helping us tackle this timely matter.
Q: How do we make reasonable New Year’s fitness resolutions that we’ll actually keep?
A: Keep moderation in your goals for the new year. If you want to, let’s say, give up drinking and you love margaritas, cut the intake by half. Keep your goals realistic! Once you start to see and feel the results, usually I find it keeps one motivated to keep going. Also, switch it up! Truth is, exercise is a way of life, not quick fix.
