The New Years Resolution crew is hitting the gym early this year - it was absolutely packed this morning. Compared to this time of day two weeks ago, we're looking at about 200% more people. I'm such a jerk to mock these people's efforts at resolving to lose weight for the new year, but it's always the same, isn't it? Everyone makes a resolution to lose weight, then they flood the gyms and the yoga studios through January and the better part of March, then just as swiftly as they appeared, they disappear and are never to be seen again.
I think it's great that so many people want to better themselves and lead healthier lifestyles, but I'll be honest, it grates on my nerves when all of the elliptical machines are taken because 15 chicks in brand new workout gear are slowly bouncing up and down on them as they focus 99% of their attention on the US Weekly magazine in their non-sweaty palms. And I'll be honest, I'm completely one of those people who keeps trying to lose weight and get into perfect shape (I feel like I've been on a diet for the past 10 years of my life) and will never be happy with their body - but at least when I go the gym, I work my ass off. Starting January 1, 2010, BC is banning cellphones while driving - they should do the same for the gym. Because no matter what anyone tells you regarding the magic of workout balls, sitting on one while talking on your cellphone will not help you lose weight.
