I’m not generally big on making new year’s resolutions. I know a few people who sometimes do though, and those resolutions often revolve around some type of fitness goal like losing a few pounds, starting a new exercise routine, eating better, that kind of thing. I even know a few people who decided to make January a dry month this year, where they would not drink for the whole month.
I wouldn’t necessarily call it a resolution but, this year, I’ve decided that I’ll be doing a dry February (well – January 26th to February 25th). That means 30 days of no drinking. At the same time, I’m trying to motivate myself to work out a bit more often than I do now and see if I can drop a few pounds.
Of course, you don’t have to eliminate alcohol from your diet to attain your fitness goals. In fact, some studies have even shown that beer can be quite effective as a post-workout recovery beverage. Perhaps that’s part of what motivated Happy Hour Fitness NW to start their Pilates & Pints program. It sounds like a great way to combine your drive for working out with your craft beer-related social life in a comfortable and familiar setting.
