New Year’s Resolutions

Yes, yes, I know everyone is probably sick of hearing about New Year’s resolutions by now. But I still have to tell you mine!

Every year I always make tons of resolutions – some I keep, some I don’t.

Let’s take a moment to think about what a resolution really is.

I had to go elementary and break out Webster’s.

The act of resolving. Ok…so to resolve:

Found it!

To me, New Year’s resolutions are #5: “to reach a firm decision about.” Resolutions aren’t about just doing good things for yourself and others because you feel like you have to keep them just to keep them, or about feeling bad when you break them.

I think resolutions are just about making a firm decision in the moment toward something better. To really think about what you’re doing and try to live the best way you can.

Cheers to our aspirations of 2013.

A few of mine are:

  • Stick to my running plan

I already look at this chart 5 times a day, so I’m seriously scared I will be sleeping with it under my pillow come March.

  • Go back to eating clean

So, I fell off the wagon – or rather – flung myself off of it willingly in late 2012.

Remember this?

  • Go to bed earlier

So this doesn’t happen:

  • Be more present in the moment – and stop stressing!

According to Runner’s World, exercise lowers anxiety. Read more about it here.

Looks like it’s going to be a good year for healthy living!
