New Year’s Resolution 36/365 originally uploaded by Sasha Wolff
Last week’s poll asked whether you prefer paper or plastic when you’re grocery shopping. Even though some prefer those reusable grocery bags which harbor some bacteria, the majority responded either paper or both plastic and paper. We have a ready supply of reusable bags and when they’re in the car they get used, otherwise they end up right where we left them–empty.
This week’s poll come as a reminder to me that I need to stop being so lazy and get my butt back in the gym on a very regular basis. With a lot of traveling in the last month (PA, Vegas, and a geocaching trip with friends to South Dakota) we’ve been doing a lot of lazy eating and not much cooking. I have definitely begun to notice the lack of my usual eating habits taking its toll on me and my health. As such, it’s time to get back into the gym as frequently as humanly possible.
There are many reasons why I can’t go as often as I like, namely that I’m lazy but also work, school, the Rooster, and any number of other excuses I can come up with so I don’t have to go. Even though I haven’t recently been going much more than the 12 times a month I need to go to get my discount, I have been making a concerted effort to do everything to get back on track to be in the gym at least 4 days a week.
Last week I bought two new swimsuits for the summer. There’s nothing I love more than swimming laps outside in the summer. It’s a great way to start the day and it’s a great stress reliever. On Wednesday we took advantage of a 30% “deal” at Kohl’s and I picked up a new pair of sneakers. I hate the treadmill but at least a new pair of shoes helps ease me back onto it.
With a new goal of at least 4x a week at the gym, I have to wonder how often all of you go and workout. Do your habits change based on the time of the year? When you go how much time do you spend actually working out? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear what you have to say.
