Fitness Friday – Not My New Year’s Resolution
It’s the start of the year. The time of year when the gym is ridiculously busy with everyone having made their New Year’s Resolution to lose weight and workout. Now, I give these people credit for getting into the gym and putting their health first. But, I want to see your sweaty faces at the gym eight months from now.
I’m not one to make a resolution, even though I did last year. It was to read more books, which I did. But, I digress. If I were to make a resolution this year, it would simply be to continue getting my booty to the gym. Or if not going to the gym, at least getting up off the couch and do a quick Kettle Worx or Hip Hop Abs DVD. Or the newest addition to our household – the Xbox Kinnect. I’ve been doing Zumba for Kids with the girl – it’s a great way to spend time together and be active.
I won’t lie, I can be lazy. It’s definitely one of my faults. But as an adult, I’ll say to myself, for instance if I don’t want to put the laundry away, “Emily, this will only take you 10 minutes to do. Quit being lazy and get off your butt.” So it’s the same thing with working out. “Emily, you wanted to eat those 10 Tootsie Rolls at work today because you promised yourself you would workout tonight. So get up!” I guess that could be called self-motivating, right? Let’s not to mention I have a company party at the end of the month and the hubs’ company party the first week of February that I want to look fit and toned for…so even more motivation.
So do you make resolutions for the new year? If so, do you actually keep them?
