February Letdown and Challenge
I notice it every January at the YMCA: the New Year's Resolutioners. With the coming of a new year, many people burst excitedly into fitness facilities to tackle those New Year's resolutions--exercising more, losing some weight, reducing that waistline.
There's nothing wrong with New Year's resolutions, but more often than not, they end once the newfound motivation wears off.
And then comes the February letdown. I also see this every year at the YMCA. As the year moves forward and January comes to a close, February means a less crowded locker room, more available treadmills, and fewer people lifting weights.
So, wonderful readers, I encourage you to continue being active this February, or continuing with whatever New Year's resolution you may have made--exercising more, losing some weight, eating healthier. Don't let the year's passage sap your motivation. If you've already fallen off the bandwagon, jump back on. If you don't have a New Year's resolution, consider setting a goal to make yourself more healthy now.
I'd love to hear from you. What resolutions did you make this year, and how's your progress going? What goals might you set now? How are you going to stay in shape in 2017?
Feel free to comment, and good luck on meeting those goals.
