Running to Me: New Year – BEST You
It’s the New Year, and honestly if I see one more “new year, new you” article I might heave. If you’re an avid workout enthusiast this might actually be a time of year that you loathe. Your regular gym is filled with New-Year-Resolutioners, and your friends or coworkers are running around exclaiming how hard they are going to work this year on there health.
I wish anyone the gift of the health and wellness, but rather than focus on a life-overhaul, I say focus on the present and day-to-day.
I am getting back into routine after giving birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy. My husband is getting back to workouts and cycling after weeks off since breaking the thumb on his dominant hand (courtesy of a mountain biking tumble). Sometimes it’s not finding a “new” you, but working on the “best” you.
I don’t need a major shake-up; I need to focus on basics. Instead of setting massive goals I want to reset my normal routine and get back into my workouts. I’m eyeing workout programs and races, looking forward to diving right back into things.
I wish you an amazing, successful new year. There’s nothing wrong with setting some healthy goals this month or year, and may you set yourself up for your best year yet! Take a few steps in the right direction.
Spill it– do you make resolutions? Plans for 2013?
