  • you are.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • We actually are--

  • I'll let you in on a little secret at home.

  • after New Year's.

  • So we'll talk about the Golden Globes, which was so fun.

  • That was yesterday, but today is this day.

  • So we'll talk about the Golden Globes tomorrow.

  • And what a night it was.

  • But it hasn't happened yet, but it

  • will have happened by the time we tape tomorrow's show.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Is everyone confused?

  • Yes!

  • That's my job.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • A lot of people make resolutions for the new year.

  • How many of you already made the resolutions for the new year?

  • [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

  • Most of you.

  • It's hard to keep the resolutions,

  • but luckily, one of my New Year's resolutions

  • is to help you keep your resolutions.

  • So I am going to randomly call names that I was curious

  • about to talk to.

  • Zeel.

  • Who is Zeel?

  • And come on down here.

  • [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

  • Oh, well that's a good goal.

  • [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

  • And do you run now?

  • I do.

  • OK.

  • But rarely.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • OK.

  • How long have you been running rarely?

  • Twice a week.

  • For how long now?

  • For about a year.

  • A year?

  • Yeah.

  • Twice a week.

  • And what's the furthest you've gone?

  • 3 miles.

  • OK.

  • So over the course of a year, you

  • haven't built up a little more than three miles?

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • That's the furthest I've gone.

  • OK, so the goal is a half marathon.

  • And when is that happening?

  • By May 2020, hopefully.

  • OK.

  • If not, I'll try again by December.

  • No, no.

  • You have to stick to something or else

  • you're going to keep pushing it off.

  • You're right.

  • No, you have to-- is there a half marathon happening in May?

  • Yes.

  • OK, well then that's your goal, right?

  • You're right.

  • You don't want to push it off.

  • You can go, "Oh, I can do it another year.

  • The whole point is to build yourself up."

  • Yeah.

  • Do you ever run on a treadmill?

  • Or what do you do?

  • Treadmill.

  • Mm-hmm.

  • OK, good.

  • All right.

  • Well, I don't think you're going to make.

  • It I feel like--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I know that you want to, but I want to--

  • you want to do it, right?

  • Yeah, absolutely.

  • All right, well I'm going to give you

  • some clothes that we sell here in The Ellen Shop and online--

  • Ellen Fitwear, and it'll inspire you.

  • [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

  • OK?

  • Thank you.

  • And some stuff.

  • And we're just-- whatever size that is, it's yours.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Give me my mic back.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I thought you were offering it to me.

  • No, you can't have this.

  • This will not help you at all.

  • [LAUGHTER]
