Don’t let your new fitness toys gather dust. Get them out again today and use them!
Whether you received holiday gifts from someone else or shopped the sales to buy yourself a present… use it!
Put on your pedometer and get walking. If the weather outside isn’t good for walking, get to an indoor track or mall (for walking, not shopping), or walk in place to music you love.
Lift those hand weights, free weights, or kettle balls.
Go through your asanas on that yoga mat.
Pop in the fitness DVD and get started on the program. (Okay, if you want to start officially on January 1st or January 3rd, that’s fine, but get familiar with the program today!)
Shoot hoops with the new basketball. Swim with the new goggles. Go cross-country skiing on the new skis.
What? You didn’t get new fitness toys?
Well. You know what to ask for the next time someone wants to buy you a gift, or what to buy the next time you see a sale. And it’s no excuse. Get moving with the toys you have if you didn’t get new ones.
BONUS * You’ll feel energized for tonight’s festivities if you take some time to work out today.
