My New Year's Resolution for 2021
Its that time of year once again and people all across the globe are making their New Year's Resolutions. A lot promise themselves to get fit, diet, and exercise.
If 2021 were not a pandemic year, people for sure would be flocking to the gyms by now and signing up for membership. I see it happen every year. Be it in the gym in our condo building where I can workout for free or gyms like 24 Fitness which I used to frequent as a paying member up until the pandemic began.
Be it the new year or not, I have long decided that I would try to be consistent and work out regularly. I haven't always been successful but I have seen results. Sad to say, I've fallen off the wagon a few times and gained back the weight I lost just a few months later.
I was particularly struck by what an Instagram follower and friend told me a few months ago about exercising. Now this friend of mine has a body to die for. He works out every single day and possesses a very sculptured body. He's not overly bulky. In fact, he's slim and his muscles are just right. He has the 6 pack too. Anyway, it was he who told me that he exercises because he hopes to be able to walk when he is old.
How very true. I keep that in mind now every time I exercise. For me, looking great is not the main purpose why I exercise. I want my body to be strong and healthy.
