Now that I am without a job, I am able to schedule my life in a more organized fashion. This includes my irregular workouts. Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays are my days…my time at the gym, at least that is the current schedule I am now working on.
The place was just as it normally is without any people with resolutions to break down the road. When I worked out at the YMCA you could tell the season by the wait times:
Februrary: Still full, but slowly the crowds disapated down.
March: Not so full anymore. In fact, most of the big ones were long gone.
April: If the weather was a nice spring-like day, the place was near empty.
May – June – July – August and even a tad into September: Only the diehards.
October: Numbers up due to crappy weather and guilt from summer barbeques.
December: The closer to xmas, the less heads bobbing on the treadmills.
For me, my macho days have long since surpassed and now it is a matter of staying healthy and hopefully I too can stick to my planned schedule of 3 days a week…
Although the seasons may be different at the Y, but of course that will change in over a short time soon…Resolutionists usually fail and go back to their old ways once again.
Let’s face facts, according to a recent reality check, in the USA “only 8 percent saig they always achieve their resolutions…and the trend decreases with age…”.
