It seems a tad early for it, but it was definitely noticeable at the gym yesterday. The rows of empty machines, the half empty spinning class, the fact that I did not have to perform half naked aerobatics to reach my locker. The Resolutioners are leaving.
Now is the time when we start seeing the birth of new *true* fitness fanatics. People that are going beyond the New Years Resolution time period and who will become familiar faces week after week.
I think there should be a sort of celebration at the end of January, when according to Franklin Covey over 35% of us will have broken our brand shiny new resolutions. Anyone left in the running should be rewarded with a party, and cake. Or a fruit and veggie tray for those whose resolutions involve avoiding cake.
In the spirit of helping everyone avoid being one of those 35%, Merry over at Cranky Fitness has put up a Quick Reference Chart to help you decide if you should go to the gym today or not. Since laughter helps with a whole slew of health issues, and because being in a good mood makes you more likely to decide that, yeah, you can handle that spin class, I recommend posting said chart somewhere like the fridge ^_^
I scoured the internets trying to find more useful links on *keeping* resolutions, but unfortunately everything I found related more to *making* resolutions than "after the fact keeping yourself going" tips. Anyone got any good links for me?
