Resolutions anyone?

I used to scoff at the people working out in the resort gyms.  I could not figure out why they were exercising on vacation.  It’s vacation-you don’t do unpleasant things while vacationing.  But, this past year, I have made a commitment to exercise, and I now “get-it”.  Exercise becomes a part of your life, and when you don’t do it, something is missing.

For those of you who are now at Disney World and making a resolution to get fit in 2012, here is my Public Service Announcement to let you know where you can start fresh on January 1st. (courtesy of the Disney World website)

    I make goals instead of resolutions. I don’t know why, but I just don’t like the work resolution – goal just seems more positive to me.

    While I haven’t used the fitness centers at WDW, I have certainly done a fair amount of exercise walking and running around the resort grounds where ever I’m staying!

    • I always thought that all the walking at the parks and resorts were more than enough exercise. I using a pedometer on my next trip so I can see just how much walking I’ve done.

  2. That picture from Cornell is hysterical… I love it. ♥Happy ♥New ♥Year ♥ &
    TY for the blog love! 🙂
