Gearing Up for this Year’s Get-In-Shape Quest

BY Nancy G. Janiola IN , , 13 comments

Contrary to what I believed as still popular these days, I was surprised to learn that a great number of people have long been casted the thing away from their faculty now too. To them making a New Year’s resolution or a list of things one wants to accomplish for the year is nothing but a waste of time seeing a lot of these makers (probably including themselves then) are not actually making any of it. Can’t blame them though! It is indeed easier to make a change when you know exactly you can make it for yourself regardless of time.

Well as for the subject of this post, getting in shape is nothing new to me. It isn’t a failed 2011 New Year’s resolution either but rather a regimen I’ve been trying to keep for over a year now though I must admit it has downtimes too on the process. But it’s not like it is something I felt badly crazy about. I know exactly what I want to achieve and know when to start. And yes, for the entire holiday I made an exception. I bet you who are on the same grind did the same too.

Now it’s time to get back on track.

This morning I was asked to shop for party supplies for my niece’s birthday tomorrow. I took that chance to grab this pair of knee caps I can use for doing push-ups. I still find it hard doing the conventional way so I’m on my knees most of the time.

I also have my other workout accessories ready. I doubt if I can kick off tomorrow though with all the tasks assigned to me for the party but let there be no more excuses come the next day. Time waits for no one. In achieving something, let this phrase be our guideline instead.

Gearing up to protect your self while working out is really needed. I fell down on once while working out and my knees hit the floor and got bruised. Tsk. Cant move my knees the next day. Anyway, happy bday to your niece.

Getting in shape this new year sounds good. Doing push-ups is one thing to be in shape. Good luck to your physical exercise as what you've said to be in shape!

I'm one of those who do not make new year's resolutions. I just do what I need to do at the time I plan to, regardless of the time of the year. :)

hmm, why i don't see your article title here?

on topic, may you consistently get in shape all throughout the year - physically, emotionally and mentally.

I used to workout before, I have a pair of gel gloves for lifting weights, but, never thought of buying knee pads. Getting fit is one of my New Year's resolution! Have a wonderful day! =)
