This is a guest post from Just A Guy Thing.Well, it's been two days since the ball dropped, so we at JAGT hope that you haven't abandoned your new year's resolution just yet. It's customary to wait until the third week in January to stop going to the gym. If you have already broken your resolution, or haven't come up with one already, fear not. Resolutions aren't legally binding and there's no cutoff date when it comes to bettering yourself. With that in mind, Gawker has assembled a list of considerations to make when crafting your resolution(s). There's nothing terribly earth-shattering here (be realistic, allow yourself room for missteps, pick a goal that you can control), but it's still good advice.
Also worth mentioning on the topic of new year's resolutions: for obvious reasons, gym memberships see a huge spike in January. While it's never too early to get going to the gym, gyms almost always offer their least favorable membership terms during the early part of the year. So if you have substitute activities in which you can partake until spring, you'll probably be able to get a better deal at virtually every gym.
