New year. New resolutions. Invariably, that usually involves losing weight and doing something to get yourself into a better state of health, particularly with the upcoming swimsuit season looming. Setting up a workout regimen can be an overwhelming proposition with the psychological and emotional aspect of it at times being far more daunting than the actual act of hitting the gym. But it needn’t be that intimidating if you let common sense be your guide.
Having survived the polar vortex that recently swept across our region, shopping for a swimsuit may not be at the top of our priority list.

And with all this commotion going on, believe it or not, there’s about as much to love about Penn Station as there is to hate about it.
