We are just over a month into 2015, so how are your New Year’s Resolutions going? Many of us take a good look at ourselves at the end of each year and decide to embark on an overly optimistic exercise plan for the New Year with good intentions of losing weight and improving our health and fitness. Perhaps we even set goals such as getting in shape for the summer and looking good on the beach.
We have all seen how busy the fitness centers are in January. It can be hard to get on our preferred cardio machine or get a spot in our favorite workout class. Like all New Year’s resolutions, the exercise resolution often starts well. We get up early every morning for a run or we make it to the gym every evening after work. We may even add a workout in during the weekend! And, we feel good. Not just physically (we know exercise can boost our energy levels), but also emotionally and mentally, partly because we did what we committed to do. We feel we accomplished something and we are on track with our plan for the New Year!
