“This year, my New Year’s resolution is going to be work out regularly and lose ten pounds.” We hear it all of the time, it is one of the most common resolutions in the country, but before you start, consider getting a physical. Making the decision to start getting fit, losing weight, and eating healthy is one of the best resolutions you can make. Which, of course, we are very happy to hear. But, make sure you know about your body and speak to your physician before you start your routine. It’s the safest way to make your resolution a success. December and November are great months to make an appointment to get your year-end physical and get on the right track to starting your resolution on January 1st. Also, make sure to have your primary care physician lined up to help you track your progress as you go. They can give you tips and tricks to help you optimize your exercise routine and eat the healthiest you can for your body type. And don’t just think year end physicals are just for those with a New Year’s resolution. Getting your health in check for the upcoming year, is just as important without a resolution. Start the year off right and book your physical today.
