New Years Resolutions with fitness & giveaway!

Spread the love

The New Year is almost here. Can you feel it? Have you wrapped your mind around it yet? Are you ready?

Many people set resolutions in the beginning of the new year since the beginning of a new year comes with the promise of a new beginning, new motivation, new YOU! Fitness is often the top priority in many peoples’ lists to improve on in the new year. It is on mine as well!


What are some ways I am planning on improving my fitness in the new year 2013?

  • Exercise 4-5 days a week, every week. By this, I hope to say it will be a legit workout every time but even when I don’t feel like I can get a real workout in, I will do some sort of activity to get my body moving and the blood pumping and flowing freely. The month of December has been the slowest and laziest I’ve been all year and it’s time to take it back and focus on exercise once more.
  • I will run/jog/walk at least once a week – cardio is always the most difficult for me to do, I am just not big on cardio but it is immersely important and I pretty much have to learn to enjoy it for me to actually stick with it. It’s about time I get into cardio more. It’s important.
  • I will do yoga at least twice a month. I would say once a week but I have made that resolution before for some of my monthly goals and I fell through most times. I’ll be more realistic this time. Twice a month is totally do-able. And I need yoga in my life. I haven’t done it in a few months and my body is totally craving it.
  • I will try CrossFit sometime in the new year.
  • I will go swimming sometime in the new year.
  • I will go boxing again sometime in the next 3 months. (I miss it!)

To go along with the new years resolutions around fitness, I’d like to talk about hh gregg and their newest Facebook promotion.

New Year’s Solution! Get Healthy & Win Big! 

hh gregg has a ton of fitness equipment available for purchase on their website and in store. Man, how awesome would it be to have enough room in my apartment or home for my very own fitness equipment? It would be so awesome.. I would get a treadmill, that’s a number one. The website has a ton of those and I definitely would have to do my research well before buying if it came down to it, but I’m pretty sure they are all better than the treadmills we have in my building’s gym – those are so old! It’s bad. Second, I would definitely get an elliptical. I love using ellipticals as a steady cardio while reading a book or listening to an audiobook or better yet, watching TV! It makes the time go by so quickly.

For workouts without intense equipment, something on my list has been a heart rate monitor, which I’m hoping to get soon! The website has a ton of Polars to choose from and you can win some in their promotion I’m going to talk about in a bit. Then of course there are the other fitness accessories, such as resistance bands (which are awesome – they look cute but are deadly! I have two), balance balls, and other fun fitness stuff. It’s worth checking out. I mean, you have a ton of options to choose from. What, oh what, will you get with your giftcard if you’re the winner? Oh, I totally just spoiled what the giveaway consists of. Oops 😉

  1. I always forget you were into boxing! I miss it too. Such a fantastic release. I bet my heart rate would be through the roof too… hmmm… I feel a Polar experiment coming on…

    • Yess! Omg, I’m totally gonna wear my Polar next time I do it! I’ve heard it burns around 700 calories per hour – and I’m not surprised. Such a great workout. Really great stress relief. Hopefully I get my Polar soon so I can do the experiment as well :))

  2. I’ve been training since Sept for the Spartan Race (Sprint) in April. Just keeping motivated to do that and then possibly do tough mudder later in the year. And cut down on my sugar, that’s the biggest thing that holds my diet and fitness back, damned sweet tooth!

  3. Thanks for hosting this giveaway! The turkey on a treadmill ad was funny and appropriate for how I feel right now – stuffed 🙂

  4. some great goals you have there! I wanna make a resolution to do yoga at least that much too!

  5. I just started making resolutions or goals in 2012. I accomplished a lot but fell off the bandwagon for some. Maybe I need to par it down for 2013?

  6. I always make resolutions but just recently started keeping them. My main goal is to train smart and not get injured.

  7. I’ve never boxed before…I’m pretty sure I’d like it! 🙂

    Happy New Year!

  10. I have atom of race goals and want to train for my first full!

  11. I do make New Year’s resolutions, but I don’t know what mine for this year are yet – maybe being more active ought to be one. Thanks for the great giveaway! I’m Lle Schreiber on Rafflecopter

  12. I’m not big on resolutions but am learning to set concrete goals — like you did. I still need more yoga in my life. Once a week is my goal!

  13. Thanks for having the giveaway. Ive been meaning to try yoga and crossfit too

  14. I love making goals and lists… although I may not always complete those goals.

  15. Madeline @ Food, Fitness, and Family

    My resolution is to finally make my goal time in the half marathon!

  16. I don’t make New Yer’s Resolutions, but I do set goals and intentions. My number 1 goal: become stronger in all aspects of my life.

  17. I plan to step it up in the new year too. I hope to train, really train for a few races, and get back (yet again) to my yoga practice.

  18. I don’t make new years resolutions. I try to set small goals for myself throughout the year. Awesome giveaway, girl!

  19. I just love your blog! My only resolution is to be helthy in mind, body and spirit

  20. I haven’t full thought through my new year’s resolutions, but I think my main one will be to find myself again and find steady ground (metaphorically speaking of course). Everything else will follow suite…

  21. i try to make resolutions…. 🙂

  22. I don’t always make new year’s resolutions. This year, I’m choosing to focus on a specific word versus making a long list of resolutions.

  23. My goal for next year is to run 13 half marathons.

  24. My goal is to try to live for today and not to worry about the next day!

  25. We set fitness goals every month, but as a family our New year’s resolution is to Pay It Forward and help out in our community once a month

  26. I always like to set new goals for myself!

  27. I would love to start karate again, and just being more fit.

  28. I want to be healthier – and want to work out like 3-4 times a week

  29. I don’t often make New Year’s resolutions because it seems kind of cliched…if I need to change something, I should work on it whenever it comes up during the year.

  30. I really haven’t made any I just want to be happier!

  31. Great giveaway! My New Years resolution is to eat more clean, less process, cut back on coffee and do more cardio! I so wish I could get a treadmill! I would use it everyday!!

  32. This year I won’t make “resolutions” I will make short term measurable goals 🙂

  33. This year my goal is to be able to adapt to college life. I begin in the fall and am so very excited! Also to finish up my senior year of high school in a positive way

  34. Getting back to the gym. I have been so busy lately I have let it slip.

  35. One of mine is to exercise five days every week

  36. i do not do the “new resolutions” thing as it just does not make sense to me. it just seems as though you hear all about these resolutions that people make but how many actually follow through? not many. in my view it just sets one up to fail. and why wait for one time of year to make changes? why not make the changes when you decide they need to be made and really take the time and effort to create a habit when you are doing them – one new thing at a time.

    • I agree to a degree, I did make a resolution last year on new years and I actually stuck with it. I do make new goals for each month whenever I feel it’s necessary to do so though.

  37. I want to get back into reading and writing creatively. I also want to resolve to form a better relationship with my own body — letting it rest when it needs it, exercising regularly, sleeping more, eating more natural foods.

  38. Tone up a little

  39. I typically don’t make resolutions just focus on furthering the goals I already have!

  40. I am ALL ABOUT resolutions. Cliche or not, I’m about it. One of mine is to be STRONG. That’s a very generalized resolution, but I plan to build upon it month-to-month and truly make it HAPPEN.

  41. My resolution this year is to run at an 8 minute mile average pace 🙂

  42. My resolution this year and probably also the last 10 years is to stop smoking. Hopefully this year will be the year I quit!!!!!

  43. I will drink more water, instead of coffee, tea and soda.

  44. My resolution this year is to exercise consistently and especially not give up over holidays.

  45. Stefanie Gladden ( Ann Lyfe )
