My Little Town Tuesday: They're Resolutions, Not Goals

This morning when I got to the gym at 5:30, the parking lot looked like this:



where it usually looks like this:



Which just goes to show you that self-delusion is seasonal.

Oh nooo, I am up, come by and get me!

My parking lot looks a little different :)

So true. I had planned to ease myself back into a gym routine after a couple months off (food to eat you know).

When I drove by the gym on the way home from work, I glaced at the windows and it was PACKED. And full of people I didn't reckonize.

I'll be waiting until later in January when the dilusional folks will come back to reality. Suckas!

Oh yeah, wait until next week and the week after, empty again. I'm not the only one that has to learn the hard way. I wonder if they get refunds on their memberships or are too ashamed or maybe the owner takes his vacation with all that money and does not give refunds.
I could never see paying to not exercise, I can do that at home.

At my gym, we all hate the new years resolution people, and can't wait until they all flame out and leave.

That is an amazing visual.

All sinners, trying to get saved in a flurry of a hurry....

Ah those resolution fanatics! By February 90% of them will be back at Starbucks. Happy New Year to you and yours!

I think self-delusion is a year-round phenomenon but it just goes into overdrive in January. We humans are hilarious.

The parking lot is full in all gyms around here but come February they'll all be empty again.

Just wait until Feb 5th. It'll be back to normal.

(Bwaaahha, like I know what a gym parking lot looks like.)

This is the exact reason that I refuse to join a gym in January. Wait, who am I kidding? I absolutely refuse to join a gym period.

Great wording, Buff...

Sounds like something I could be doing on my deathbed. Ha ha!

I had the same problem at the gym last week at 5pm. I could hardly find a parking place. These seasonal exercisers need to park elsewhere!
