resolutions and a new year
Posted on January 02 2012
So I know that every blogger in the blogosphere is posting on resolutions. It's the new year, it's what you do. I like making resolutions. That is, until the end of the year rolls around and I'm still fatter and lazier than I wanted to be.
So my thought for this year is "one month at a time". That's right, I'm not going to drive my self crazy with the year thing. Because we all know we say to ourselves, "oh, I already failed and it's only January 25. There goes that resolution. Guess I'll start again next year."
I'm through with that. I know that I can make it for one month. I've done it. Remember back last summer, I went a whole month without buying new clothes for myself
. And a whole month without soda (I'm sure I blogged about it, can't find the link).
So for this month, I'm only going to make a few resolutions. Something I know I can handle/do. Plus I can change them next month if I need to. But I'll know that I can follow through on what I say I'm going to do.
January Resolutions 2012
- Read my Bible everyday. Do it with me? Please?
- Go to the gym at least 3 times a week (even if I have to go without my gym buddy).
- No fast food.
- Get the new moreygirl site up and running with lots of new items.
- No new clothes for myself.
That all is doable and not impossible. If I stated #5 as a year resolution, I know it would be killing me by January 15 to get a new sweater, and you know what? I'd go buy it. But I know I can handle that for 30 days. Numbers 1 & 2 will probably be an every month resolution. But if I fail on it, I have the rest of the year to work on it.
What do you say? Think this is cheating on resolutions? It's the best solution I can come up with! :) What are you doing for your resolutions this year?
