I started working out at the gym December 17th. I know it hasn't been long, but I've managed to go 3 times a week for the last 2 weeks (tomorrow will finish up this week) and that makes me really proud.
Yesterday I went to my gym, and it was crazy busy. I'm guessing this is the new year's resolution crowd. The guy at the desk says give it 2 weeks "they drop like flys."
I'm really glad I didn't wait until the new year to get started on my Operation: Healthy Lifestyle.
I've been at it for 2 months and it seems less daunting now than it did in the beginning, despite my apparent lack of staying in calorie range. (sigh)
I wonder how many of the new people to my gym will manage to stay on track, or at least keep working out? I know a few years ago I made a resolution to quit smoking, and I did it cold turkey and kept it up for 6 months.
Until a horrible day they let go most of my department at that job (from 12, there were 3 left). I was so stressed I picked it up again and kept it up until fairly recently.
I didn't even hate it when I started up again. I never hated it again, even up until the day I quit. I still don't hate smoking, it's just not for me at this time. (I'm actually quite pro-smoker's rights, they get the shaft all the time!)
So these new found gym people, going for new years resolution, won't keep it up, and won't hate that they didn't keep it up. And that makes me wonder...
Why oh why won't they re-rack their weights?
