Just Do It!

OK....so, I posted a video to my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/dmofitness) this morning with the caption, "You don't have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great".  I went on to say that "The hardest part of anything is to get started....just do it!  You will be glad you did".  AND....I tell people all the time that I completely understand how hard it is to start a health/fitness program....that starting is the most difficult part of it.
