One of “Those People”

Every year, I complain about all “those people” who show up at the gym on January 2nd. You know the ones. They go every January and then stop. This year, I’m going to be one of those people who shows up at the gym on January 2nd. I don’t plan to stop. I plan to continue and be successful.

I’m going to start the new Weight Watchers Freestyle program on January 1st. I’m excited about the new zero-point items, such boneless, skinless chicken breast, corn, peas, and beans. This new plan seems so much more do-able. Here’s a video that explains the new Freestyle plan.

For the past three years, I’ve been working on my doctorate. I’ve been sedentary during that time, and the less I moved, the less I could move. I bought one of those little under-desk bicycles. They’re available on Amazon and cost around $39.99. My knees hurt when I use a treadmill or an elliptical, but I don’t have any pain after using this cycle.

It has been a miracle. My core and legs are stronger, and I can do much more than I have in a long time. I’ve been trying to use this to make 10,000 steps per day on my Fitbit.  To make the steps count on my Fitbit, I put my hand on my thigh and it jiggles my wrist and counts the steps.

The cycle has toned my abdomen significantly. Before using the cycle, I didn’t believe it would work, but it is an excellent form of exercise. It has increased my stamina significantly.

So, look out gym, here I come…on January 2nd…
