New Year’s Resolution? Not Me!!!!

January 27, 2016

I don’t like New Year’s Resolutions. There I said it…I know …I am un-American. But honestly I never stick with anything I resolute to doing. With the exception of last year that is. Last year in Jan 2015 I visited the gym that I currently hold a membership with. I spent 45 minutes on the treadmill and I was absolutely miserable. I remember looking around at everyone else sweating and focusing with their headphones stuck in their ears. I remember thinking that there is no way that these people are having a good time right now! I’ll bet every one of them has something they would rather be doing…  like cleaning their toilet or something.

When I arrived home that night from my first workout of the year I made a resolution to NOT work out again for the rest of the year. After all life is short! Maybe I should be doing things that make me happy instead right? So that was my New Year’s Resolution for 2015. And guess what…I totally nailed it. First time ever.  So why do we make resolutions with ourselves with things that are difficult? I don’t know about you but I fail at things in this life all the time. The last thing I need is failing at my New Year’s Resolution.

Now for those of you who think I don’t believe exercise is a good thing and I should be doing it…you are not getting this. What I am saying is that I have decided to stop letting myself down by titling a challenge “New Year’s Resolution” that I know I am going to fail at. So if I do decide to pick a “New Year’s Resolution” for this year it’s going to be something that I enjoy so much that I am definitely going to succeed at it. Something like eating chocolate everyday or watching a movie in my bed while I eat Boss Nacho’s from Taco Bell. Then when this year ends I can look back proudly exclaiming my New Year’s Resolution awesomeness. So follow my lead people…let’s all resolute the easiest thing that makes you the most happy and leave all those difficult challenges to just regular challenges we have to face in this life anyway.
