NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION


Today at the gym, it was obviously January 2nd.

The first thing that I noticed was the free valet parking. It amazes me that you go to workout but cannot park your car and walk into the gym.

Next , as I was walking down the hall, I saw that every membership advisor offices was full. People motivated and wanting to join to change their lives.

I then went upstairs and grabbed a treadmill for our Team workout. I looked around and every piece of excercise equipment was taken. That's awesome to see. The only problem is that on March 1 the gym will have returned to the same look as before.

Lastly, I noticed the personal trainers walking around like vultures ready to take advantage of people new to working out. I have never seen so many trainers. The were even handing out towels to people on the treadmills.

I once read that 90% of people who make New Year's Resolutions never stick to them. I am not making any resolutions but I do have goals.

I did 60 min. on the treadmill tonight. I varied the incline up to 15 . I added weights and bands to increase my heart rate and work my upper body. I felt good when I left the gym.

Waddling toward my goals...........

Are gym was crazy tonight as well. I didn't make it there but my wife told me about it. I elected to hit the bike trainer.

Look forward to following you in 2008.

Oh, god - I am dreading going to the gym tomorrow. I haven't been since the day after christmas, and I don't know what I'll find!

I am always happy to see the first few weeks of the year over and all those with good intentions gone from the gym.

Waddle right past those waiting for their cars to be parked or retrieved. Waddle On, Girl, Waddle On Right Through All of 2008 and then On...

I hate how the gym gets super busy this time of year, I can never find an open machine!

I wandered over to LTF at 8 PM last night, expecting the worst to be gone. Nope. Packed.

I giggle when I see the valet boys. I violently giggle. It's so wrong!

You've mentioned all the reasons why I haven't set foot in the gym yet. I have membership but I know how crazy it will be right now. It won't be long until it gets back to normal.

Valet parking?
