I’m not much for New Year’s resolutions. While the beginning of a new year is refreshing, I don’t go overboard and write an entire new scene for the upcoming 365 days. It seems self-defeating. In reality, nobody completely changes any one part of their life very successfully (unless something drastic happens). So, I try to make small changes that will stick.
This is our small change for the physical aspect of things. Like most women, I have little upper body strength. So, I bought the chin up bar and it’s been hung in the most busy doorway in our home: the door from the hall/bedrooms to the main living area. I figure, if I can just hang there for a little while (yes, seconds) several times a day, eventually, I’ll be able to pull up a little. And eventually, I’ll be able to do a few chin ups. So, that’s my goal: to hang in the door a little while several times a day. Sounds pitiful, but it’s a start. Pitiful? Yes. My oldest – who is MALE – can do more than one single handed chin up. dog. That’s okay. I’m giving it a start.
I’ll keep you posted.
Do you have a plan of action for improving your physical abilities in the new year? Tell me about it.
