Happy 2015 everyone! With the new year comes new resolutions and this year I have resolved to get into better shape. Instead of just shoving as much garbage food into my mouth as I can until I explode I’m trying to be more aware of the things I eat. I’m trying to drink less alcohol and more water and juices. But most importantly, I’ve begun to workout again. Nothing gets me into better shape mentally and physically than a nice, long run and lifting some free weights.
People think just because they don’t have the money to pay for a gym membership they can’t stay in shape. Well that is completely untrue. Find a little empty space in your home and buy some cheap gym equipment. There’s plenty of new and used stuff at garage sales and on Krrb that can easily get that bod back into shape.
It’s all about the routine. Lifting a few weights once every two weeks isn’t going to do anything for you. You should be doing some physical activity at least three to four times a week. I like to go for a run every other day slowly increasing the length of my runs. Setting new goals every week, whether it’s running a quarter mile further or lifting weights that are five pounds heavier, will keep you going throughout the year and hopefully throughout the rest of your life!
So let’s do this thing folks! 2015 is our year. What ways are you going to get in shape? Let us know in the comments below.
