As Summer winds down and beach season starts coming to a close…you may have notice that this Summer has effected your waist line. The BBQ chicken, soft serve ice cream, and happy hour cocktails were too much for even the most experienced workout buff. It’s common and by no means are you alone. Let’s face it, your off your routine, kids are out of school, and Summer is made for fun, NOT restrictive dieting or hours of exercise.
