“Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” – Muhammad Ali
Resolutions. As you may have guessed from the fabulous articles, this issue is dedicated to health and fitness. Getting fit and losing weight are the most popular resolutions and many gyms see a rise in membership right after the holidays.
This year however, working out is not on my list. I actually do not like working out- I instinctively feel cumbersome just thinking about it. This doesn´t mean I don´t like using my body. I love walking to go meet a friend for coffee, biking (especially in Tuscany) and even the occasional run through Huatulco´s National Park feels great.
My only resolution this year is to find inspiration all around me. For me, this means greeting the sunrise with a meditation, meeting friends for the Yoga Challenge, more dance parties in the living room, walking up the river with my husband and daughter and getting pumped up for the Race for the Red Fundraiser Rally.
In the words of American journalist Mary Schmich ¨Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it or of what other people think of it. It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.¨ Have fun finding your inspiration! See you next month, Jane
