New Year, New You?

It’s New Years’ Eve.  I’ve eaten 2 1/2 donuts and I can’t even begin to tell you what the last 8+ days have looked like for me.  And I’m watching the clock to see when I can crack the bottle of wine open that’s waiting for me in the fridge.

And it’s OK….

I feel the guilt.  I feel the lack of energy from all the crap I’ve put into my body.  But I enjoyed it all, for the most part.  And sometimes, it’s important to indulge and disconnect.

I’m not one to believe in New Years being the time to commit to fitness.  I do truly believe it needs to become a part of one’s life in order to be successful.  But I also believe in breaks and I honestly look forward to the re commitment.  It’s like reuniting with a best friend!  You have to look at it that way – make it fun and it will never be a chore.

2016 will bring changes for Meghan Kelly Fitness.

  • I studied a better part of the 2015 year to pass my ACE Personal Trainer exam, which occurred on the 22nd!  I hope to work with clients on bettering themselves in this New Year.
  • My youngest will start kindergarten this coming Fall, which will provide me with alone time for the first time in almost 9 years!  I’m excited to add classes, small group sessions and much more when that time comes!
  • I hope to grow my client base and deepen my connections with my current clients.  What I enjoy most about the personal training relationship is the opportunity to work on an individual basis and find a path to make fitness fun and a permanent partner in life.

So that’s my plan for 2016

A new me?  Not really – but I’ll never stop learning and trying to be a better version of me.  What’s your plan?  Can I help?

    I read Meg’s post on this blog, and I wanted to reiterate what she said. I also take occasional breaks from eating sensibly and working out, but I am always drawn back to class first, because it is indeed fun, and there is lots of variety in the workouts (Meg’s “hybrids” are killers!), but also because of our group of fitness friends as Meg calls us, who encourage and support each other. You can walk into class feeling like crap, and walk out ready to tackle your problems the next day.

    The best part of being a “regular” in these classes is that there is seldom more than a day or two when there is no class at all to take. Sign up for the Insanity/P90X package and buy a punch card at the Allure studio, and you can take class almost every day of the week, including weekends.
