First resolution covers what most resolutions focus on, health. Mine is to break a sweat, most days. I have some things that I already like to do, my weekly dance classes and barre class, but there are many days where I feel like a sedentary bum. So I decided to add jogging into my routine a couple times a week. My mom and I have agreed that no one looks happy when they run, but they do look more in shape than me so I’ll give it a shot. And, I mean, if Lena Dunham can do it so can I! I feel like we are on the same wavelength when it comes to running, you know, that it is horrible until it is not. For days that I only want to brake a sweat for a couple of minutes and then go on to watch The Americans? I am all about kettlebells!
I love kettlebells because you feel like you are getting a great workout right away and it is a great way to get weight training and cardio in for the day. I have done the workout above a lot (from Women’s Health) and have started to mix it up with some videos I found on youtube. Here is one that I like from the Tone It Up girls. It is a good workout, if you can get though their crazy bikini/glamour shot intro!
And of course, every resolution should have a book to go with it! I have read countless health and weight loss books and my favorite is also the simplest:
Frank Lipman’s The New Health Rules gives you simple advice along with beautiful and inspiring photographs. I bought it a year ago and come back to it over and over for motivation.
Do you have any health themed resolutions?? Let me know!
