The Fitness Spirit


Christmas is four weeks away – the countdown is on until the feast and holiday cheer season.   It is a wonderful celebration with the lights, hot chocolate and cookies, ham, turkey, potatoes, cranberries, eggnog…I can hardly wait!

There is only one little problem: January 1st comes shortly thereafter.  This is resolution time!  I am one of those people who make resolutions.  It is always the same, year after year:  I will lose the 7 (it seems to be  a consistent number)  pounds that I gained over the holidays by the end of January. There is a reason for the deadline. January 31st is when my resolution enthusiasm losses much of the pizzazz.

This year, I thought that I would be brilliantly proactive.  I am making a December 1st resolution to increase my fitness regime over the next month.  To get me into the spirit, the week will be dedicated to fitness. I can hardly wait to start – (I still have a few days rest until December 1st – I don’t want to rush things along)
