So something that I decided to ditch in last year are EXCUSES. I will miss them because they were really good companions and they were always there with me to make me feel a little better over a missed workout or deadline. When I didn’t meet a goal they were always right next to me, letting me know I was justified in my failure. I thought they were my friends, but it turns out they have been my worst enemy because and I have made soooo many of them.
They are so smart and clever and I would always nod my head as they said, “You really don’t have time today...” and “But today is a special occasion so eat what you want...” and “You are feeling under the weather..” and “You were up late last night so sleeping in is just healthier.” and “You didn’t do the laundry...no workout clothes so forget it.” and “Just take the week off because your PMS is a b****.”
So thanks excuses for a lot of really comfy sleep ins and for helping my guilty conscience out, but I am on a different path now!
This year is my year of personal responsibility and achievement. I will be keeping promises to myself and achieving the goals I set for myself. Daily, weekly, monthly and for the year 2013. When January of 2014 rolls around, I don’t want to be laying in my bed saying, “Well, I didn’t do anything I set out to do, but I had a lot of good reasons why.” No matter if the reasons are good or bad, I can’t reach the goals unless I put in the effort. This year I am breaking out and doing what needs to be done!
I know I will have my fair share of setbacks and mess ups, which is fine, but I really want to focus on always moving forward and just sticking to it regardless.
In 2013 I am planning on stacking up my achievements, building forward momentum and having a great year all around. Bye Bye Excuses!
