Failure is just one step towards success.
Monday, May 09, 2011
So, I beautifully and spectacularly failed at all my New Year's resolutions. However, there's still more year yet.
I am completely off the cow though. Eating it makes me feel sweaty, hot, bloaty, greasy, and generally crappy. So no more of that. Maybe I'll at least keep my vegetarian resolution.
I think my problem is that I was far too specific. I've never been a terribly linear person, so I think all those rules and structures I set up for myself was really me setting myself up for failure. I'm more of a flow person than rule person.
Therefore, whole new set of resolutions, just in time for summer to really kick off.
1. Join a SparkTeam.
Tada, did that ^_^ now I have to follow the team goals, which I think I can do. They offer a video a day of an exercise routine that I think I can actually do, so I'm going with it! I start tomorrow (or rather, today, since I'm starting late in the so-late-it's-early time).
2. No more coffee.
I love tea, and I love coffee, but I always feel terrible after drinking the coffee - all buzzy and uninspired. I think I'll stick to tea if I want any hot caffeinated beverage.
3. No more junk food.
And that's it. That's all my resolutions. Junk foods make me feel bloated and sluggish, so I'm just going to get rid of them. It might be a gradual thing, but I feel better when I eat natural grains, vegetables, and fruits, rather than when they're puffed into corn chips. If it makes me feel crappy, I'm not going to eat it.
I also gained 16 pounds back due to school stress, but now that it's summer, I'm going to get back on track and make progress again. I feel better about myself when I'm active and eating right. Now if only I can find ways to incorporate "healthy" into college life.
