So get serious now, and jump start your exercise goals. The last weekend of the year is great for finding gym deals, but try something you can stick with.
-Thanks to the Great Recession, gym equipment is cheap and easy to come by on Craigslist and eBay. Something in your home is going to e easier to use than a gym membership (and easier to come back to if you lapse).
-Make a list of active hobbies for the new year. Overshoot and make the list long. Pick easy to plan things like a daily walk, and harder things like an outdoor trip. Don’t forget to add small, easy things that you can incorporate into your existing routine.
-Check YouTube for at home work out videos. It’s easy to pair YouTube with most new TVs and bluray players, or set up a laptop in your living room.
-Starting this weekend, plan on accomplishing one small thing each week day (parking farther away at work counts), and a bigger thing on the weekend. If you’re still weighed down by Christmas cookies, just sit down with next year’s calendar and make a plan for yourself!
-Finally, remember that good health and fitness are a lifestyle, not just a one time goal. Don’t try and make radical changes, just take a baby step in the right direction every time you think of it. Eventuslly you’ll have gone far.
What’s on your list to get moving in 2014?
