Today, the gym was eerily quiet. Every treadmill was open, and I had no need to wait for any weights. It’s January 16th, and it’s a Sunday, shouldn’t everything be packed?
When I spoke with the lovely gym attendant, she told me that it had been packed, but has already died down post New Year. So two weeks in the resolutions are done? I understand that life gets busy, believe me, I was working 10 and a half hour days every day this week, but with all the benefits of exercise, how can one pass it up on their days off?
I remember reading that people who set fitness goals achieve a lot more than people who just set weight loss goals. And ever since, this has always been my way of life. And while I wanted to start my year with weight loss goals (ie: lose all the weight I gained a week in New Orleans), I’ve decided to go one step further.
So, in order to be held accountable for the goals I have, I’m going to post it here. My goal for 2011 is to run a 10K by my birthday in June.
Yes, this may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but I used to cry every time I had to run the mile in gym class. I hated running, and while I’ve warmed up to it these days, sometimes it takes every ounce of strength to get myself on a treadmill.
What are your new year’s fitness goals and resolutions?
