Come January, you climbed up the fitness wagon, sure that this was the year you would make a difference to your health, fitness and weight. Six months on, do you recognise yourself as any one of these people?
1.The Grandstander:You began the year with such incredible plans – “I will get up at 5 amevery days” or “I will do two hours of cardio every day” – and it’s no surprise that it didn’t last even for 15 days.
2.The Lunk:You’re a sucker fordole shole and would have loved to look like how Salman Khan does in Sultan. But you could never get beyond eyeing yourself in the mirror and grunting overtly loudly each time you picked up weights!
3.The Fashionista:You bought the latest Dryfit tees and shoes, you colour coordinated your socks and tracks, you toted a bottle of infused water but lost all your enthusiasm the moment it was time to exercise.
4.The Glutton:You’ve always been a sucker for melting hot cheese, and those chocolate desserts seem to be calling out to you? “Just one more bite, and I’ll stop!”, is what you kept telling yourself, but clearly, that didn’t happen.
5.The Socialite:Hell, you were planning to use your time in the gym to exercise, but you ended up meeting so many people you just had to stop and say hello! And then there was Facebook, IM and what not!
6.The Whiner:Something was always wrong! You pulled a muscle, you forgot your socks, you missed your pre-workout snack, you had a late night, you couldn’t find your keys…you get the drift?
7.The Lurker:You made it to the gym, but you don’t start right away. You find every excuse in the book, tying your shoelace, adjusting your posture, but the minute your Personal Trainer walked by, you become a workout machine.
8.The Skipper:You make cameos rather than appearances. First seen at the start of the week, next at the end of the month, casually slipping in unnoticed. But hey, still counts right? No.
9.The Procrastinator:2014 went by fast, 2015 had no time whatsoever. 2016 is the year, you promise to yourself. 6 months down, the gym subscription has run out, the new shoes are untouched and you are where you started. Psst… 6 more months remain!
