I don't do New Years resolutions
Monday, December 31, 2012
Just never been my thing. I always thought if there is a change I want to make, why wait until the first of the year to do it? If I really want or need to make a change, why not do it NOW? Whenever NOW is?
At the start of 2012 I did not resolve to lose weight, get healthy, start exercising, nothing like that. But there was an itch, a tickle, a tinkle, in the back of my brain pushing my toward making some changes. And so, about mid-January I started making some changes. Slowly at first and then building momentum.
Lately the little tickle in the back of my brain has been less noticeable. Not gone, but diminished. Maybe I'm just ignoring it because I'm tired of heading its call. I know I need to get back to it. I know that itch has my best interest at heart, but I'm just not sure I'm ready to listen to it yet.
So tomorrow is the first day of a new year, but yesterday was the first day of a new week. So as of yesterday I am slowly attempting to tune in to that little tickle. I'm starting small, going back to the basics that got me rolling in 2012.
For the month of January I am working on the following:
at least 10 minutes of exercise every day
at least 4 cups of water every day
at least 2 fruits and vegetables every day
Mixed success yesterday with a party last night. Another party tonight, so I'll do my best.
But why wait until tomorrow? Why not do it today? Some may want one last "splurge". I've been splurging since Halloween. It's time to kick myself in the backside and do what I know needs to be done!
