How to stay in shape when you are busy?

You’ve been exercising for months and then get derailed by the holiday season. Here’s how to stay in shape when you’re busy- it’s easier and faster than you think.

December is here and before we know it, Christmas will be here. The kids are out of school next week, there’s shopping to be done and the many lunches and dinners to be had. Just because we may have limited tim doesn’t mean you shoud stop working out!
