My New Year’s Resolution: The Key To Sticking With It

new year, new me

Every year I constantly see people tweeting, Facebooking, and sharing their New Year Resolution’s online… how they are drastically going to change their lives, their health habits, the amount of money they spend, and so on and so forth. But we all know these things rarely ever happen. We’re all guilty of it. I’m totally guilty of it.

Last year my New Year goal was the lose weight and to just be completely healthy all around. Well, to be honest. I kicked butt for a good while. I started working out every single day and eating very healthy, which was pretty hard considering I was a full-time student, had a part-time job, and made very little money to spend on healthy groceries.

This lasted about 3 or 4 months. To be completely honest with you, I have no idea what made me stop. I cant remember for the life of me what made me quit. If a holiday rolled around, or if something drastic happened and I took a few days off and just didn’t get back into the routine..who knows?

But, with all this being said… I’m not a quitter. I’m challenging myself to this resolution once again. I don’t necessarily think I’m a “fat”, but hey, losing a few pounds would be nice. Also, I just want to be healthier all together. Being healthy is SO important to me. I eat pretty healthy on a day to day basis. I RARELY eat fast food anymore. I take vitamins every day, mostly drink water, and pack a healthy lunch for work every single day.

So, Lets talk details.

To achieve this goal of mine I will be doing the following:

  1. Daily workouts and recording how many sets of each workout I do so I can refer back each day and slowly challenge myself a little more. (I will keep a cute little journal to do this so I can stay organized and make it easier on myself!)
  2. Cut out sugars (soda, candy, junk food, etc), whites (carbs, pasta, etc.), and processed foods (frozen foods).

THIS WILL NOT BE EASY.

I’ve kept asking myself over and over what would be the best day to start this because this will not be easy for me. But, there is no other day than today. If you really want something in life you have to just go for it.

Do you have a New Year Resolution? What’s important to you? Let me know!

Or if you want to join this challenge with me, let me know, I’d love to share my detailed workout schedule with you.
