Yesterday as I was driving by the gym (note, I didn't go in) I noticed an unusally high amount of cars in the lot. Gyms across the country are jam-packed in January as everyone tries to atone for the binge eating of the previous 6 weeks (speaking of bad eating habits, try bad drinking habits, the 20 worst drinks listed here). Resolutions fade as the spring progresses, and soon you have your favorite elliptical machine back. Some statistician determined that it takes 3-4 months to make something, like exercise, a habit and about 6 months until your body craves exercise after starting a workout regimen (prior to that, it seems like a punishment...."sorry, I can't get together tonight, I have to go to the gym").
Maybe I'll try to sneak in a visit before the New Year starts in force.
