Move More #GoodForYou

Nancy with Specialized vita bikeIt’s back to business after December’s holiday indulgences.

I haven’t been to Newfoundland in a year, so when I flew home to visit my mom, my belly was very happy with eating her home cooked meals, and getting invited out to all my friends and families places. So good! I miss all the socialization in Newfoundland due to the life-long friendships I have back there.

I don’t always make resolutions at the start of the year. But this past year I spent a lot of my time at my desk or being sedentary. I plan to change that this year with jumping back into the swing of things with a routine and schedule in place. That means more weekly yoga trips, more bouldering and definitely more group workout classes. I just want to move!

I’m probably not alone. A common resolution for many people is to get fit, and hit the gym. I know the regulars are going to moan and groan about the new-comers. But some of those new people joining your gym could easily become regulars or even a workout pal of yours in the future if you reach out to them. So don’t knock’em.

For some people, work and travel can also get into their normal routine of doing what’s good for them. I know this is true for me. I didn’t always make the best food choices while home in Newfoundland, didn’t hydrate like I normally do, and I certainly didn’t exercise enough

That being said I’m not huge into attending a regular gym to do my own workouts. I prefer group yoga, or like I said group workouts similar to CrossFit or fit36. And bouldering….Oh I’ve missed it terribly. In preparation I’ve already trimmed down all my nails to drive over and get a nice climb in.
