8S FRIDAY, JANUARY 24 - MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 2014 SPORTS & OUTDOORS Cape Gazette did it again.

The abnormally cold temperatures have only made matters worse as I'd rather go home and get warm after work than drive across town to the gym. Never- theless, I have committed my- self to a new year's resolution of getting back in shape. Do you have any quick advice on how I can be successful?

The money will be well spent and will help you avoid mistakes that could be the difference between suc- cess and failure. Include a diet plan Any fitness plan without a proper diet is doomed from the start, so be sure to do your re- search and be willing to change your lifestyle. You must eat smaller, more frequent meals, increase protein intake, avoid sugar and processed carbs, and drink eight to 10 glasses of Stay consistent water a day minimum.
