2013 is almost over. All of the New Year's resolutions you said you'd get to eventually are now staring at you judgmentally. Maybe this year, right? HA! You know damn well you'll go to the gym until February 1st and then slip back into the comforts of drive-thru breakfast burritos. You’re not alone, it's the same every year. We're all gung-ho to get things accomplished in the new year and as soon as the going gets tough, we get back to our old habits.
But what if we had some backup? Surely we can draw inspiration from the Angels team. More than a few of the boys could do with some resolutionizing themselves. It's all about self improvement. If you're better today then you were yesterday, then you're on the right track. It’s an idea athletes and non-athletes alike can, and should embrace!
Let's say you want to get healthy by working out. Well, you can do that with Albert Pujols. Like Albert, maybe you need some help just staying healthy in your everyday life. Maybe you hit the gym, pick up some dumbbells and build some muscle tone. If, like Albert, you already have a solid base, look into taking yoga classes. It allows for increased flexibility and greater balance, decreasing pressure on joints. The only drawback? Pretty sure Mr. Pujols can't rock a pair of lululemon stretchy pants.
