Let’s be honest…almost no one actually keeps their New Year’s resolutions. The end of your year is full of hopes and dreams left over from the holiday season and that lead you to believe you can accomplish anything over the next 365 days.
Fly to the moon? Sure!
Run 43,909 miles? Sure!
Walk from Maine to Russia? Sure!
Don’t eat any processed sugar? Sure!
I think that everyone is still laid up from their holiday pie and cookie hangover and good decisions are never made with a food hangover. Realistic resolutions are never realistic, no matter how reasonable they seem to be.
Semi-realistic…this is more accurate.
SO many resolutions can be met but people are lazy. Yeah, I called most people lazy. Me included. Lazy is a sport and I am a gold medal winner. No, really, I’m extremely motivated but when the couch calls, I listen.
I am going to keep it real for 2017.
In and out…all year. This is realistic.
Meal prep and meal plan more often.
In order to drop this 10# I put on in 2016 (because, fuck 2016), I need to keep my diet nice and tight. I crush the exercise part but food is way too good so I need to prep in order to be successful in any way. I am a bit of an over eater when I don’t prep and plan. This is semi-realistic.
I just need to run more. Easy enough. No set mileage (because then I’ll fail), no set number of days a week to run (because then I’ll fail)…so, just run more often. This is realistic.
Spend more time with Bo
Umm, nailed it. Super realistic.
More time with the weights
I have slacked with the gym time over the last few months compared to how I was rocking it pre-fall, but I know that I can get back there easily. Gym more…realistic. But, as anyone who goes to the gym who isn’t a cardio bunny knows, an empty gym is one of the best things you can ever see.
Most of my semi-realistic resolutions could be accomplished with consistency, especially the breathing one.
Any semi-realistic resolutions you plan on maybe keeping in 2017?
