Look, we’re all for making healthy new year’s resolutions. (We even came up with a handy list of suggested ones.) But we’re also all for moderation, and for keeping your expectations reasonable.

In that spirit, we’ve brought you a list of fun-but-healthy-ish events—meaning they involve workouts, but also plenty of food and booze—coming up soon. Attend these for a quick resolution cheat day, then get right back to business. We won’t tell.

Saturday, January 21

Barre and Brew: Feel accomplished by starting the day with a 9 a.m. barre class. Then have a little fun as you relax in the Trillium taproom with a complimentary beer.

$25, 9 a.m. Trillium Brewing, 110 Shawmut Road, Canton, eventbrite.com.

Taproom Yoga: Get out of the city and attend this event at Lynn’s Bent Water Brewing Company. Your ticket includes an hour-long yoga class and two flight-sized beers.

Mighty Run and Climb: How’s this for Sunday Funday? Start with a 5K run around South Boston, then head over to Rock Spot for some rock climbing. After all that exertion, you’ll certainly need free beers from Mighty Squirrel.

Free, 11 a.m. Rock Spot Climbing, 30 Old Colony Ave., Boston, eventbrite.com.

Wednesday, January 25

Yoga for Bad People: Everything you need to know is in the name. Come for the yoga class, stay for adult (and “behaved adult”) beverages from Juice Press.

Yoga Night Out: Join Health Yoga Life for a Thursday evening yoga class at Kendall Square’s K2 Café, then head to Glass House for appetizers, mingling, and swag bags. Even better?

$5, 6 p.m. K2 Café, 520 Kendall St., Cambridge, healthyogalife.com.

Box and Bell: Every good workout should be followed with snacks, we say. At this Boston magazine-sponsored class, you’ll sweat through instructor Kelly Brabants’ boxing and kettlebell fusion class, then recover with free food and drinks.
