I love New Year's resolutions because I relish the opportunity to look at my life, set goals for myself, and have a clean slate to actualize those goals. I'm also of the camp that you can turn over a new leaf on Jan. 2, April 23, or really any day you want. The new calendar year does still hold some promise for me, and one of the things I'm most interested in achieving for 2021 is to recommit to my fitness routine. I'm feeling like I'm in a bit of a workout rut, for a couple of reasons, and since I really do love to move my body, I'm making movement a priority this year.
During that period between Christmas and the new year, when nobody really knows what day it is, I spent lots of time on the couch in my pajamas. I don't feel guilty about taking a break and resting, but now, I want to feel stronger. Plus, I've been consistently working out at home over the last nine months, but I am finding myself gravitating more toward the 15- or 20-minute workouts vs. the 45-minute to an hour videos. Look, any movement is better than nothing. However, I feel like my endurance has dwindled, and I want to work to get it back, which means moving for a little bit longer. This year, I want to feel more comfortable in my own skin, and I always feel better after a great workout.
