Whew! We did it! Pat yourselves on the back: we survived the January doldrums. January always feels like such a long month, much longer than it's 31 days, more like 131.
Not only is January bleak, cold, and dark (the expression "the dead of winter" comes to mind), but the month starts still on the holiday high and then, BAM, just like that, the good times are over. I've just spent the past few weeks taking time off work to eating awesome, high calorie meals with family and friends and then suddenly I'm expected to just go back to work, back to my routine with nothing to show for it but a few extra pounds???
