What's wrong with New Year's Resolutions

  1. I don't really make resolutions at the New Year. I don't tend to keep them if I do.
  2. I don't mind of other people do, unless they start messing with my workout. They gym is packed right now with well-meaning folks who think they are turning over a new leaf. I have only one thing to say to you people: "Get off my elliptical!"
  3. On Wednesday night I had to use a treadmill, and I ran. While it was thoroughly enjoyable, it is now Friday morning and I am about to head back to the gym.
  4. But I still need two hands to lower myself into a chair because my quads are so sore.
  5. And from now until probably President's Day, when at least some of these well-meaning optimimists will go on vacation, I will have to duke it out for a position on my preferred piece of cardiovascular equipment.

YES! That is so annoying that I tend to postpone my "fitness resolutions" (notice the careful use of quotes) until March 1st. I figure I'll use the first two months to work on other things (sleep more, eat out less) and then hit up the gym/dance class thing once all the other people have given up on it.
