I was trying to be on time for my Pilates class at the gym, however, when I steered into the parking lot, I was astonished to see it was just PACKED and my usual spot on the front row was occupied. Once inside, the machines were busy, the locker rooms full. . . Alas, it is the:
"NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONISTS!!"
Losing weight and getting fit are among the top five resolutions every year . . . And of course the top BROKEN resolutions are: LOSE WEIGHT AND GET FIT along with EAT HEALTHIER AND DIET!!
I realized long ago that I did not like the resolution tradition. So basically, I just keep on plugging a day at a time. Keeping fit and looking forward to about late February when all the Resolutionists are staying home and I get my parking spot and favorite locker and shower back. My gym buddies, many I have known for 25+ years, keep me accountable and on track!
Ring in health and wealth of soul and spirit,
Ring in joy and peace for all to hear it,
Ring in new beginnings, hold old friends near,
Ring in hopeful hearts this brand new year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014
