Realistic Resolution

Sunday, January 06, 2013

This year I wanted to make all these incredible resolutions. I wanted to resolve
* to exercise every day,
* to drink 8 cups of water everyday,
* to track my food everyday
* to blog everyday
* to take time out to relax everyday
* to not eat sweets

Thankfully my job has been so crazy busy out of control that I KNEW I could never do any of the things above "everyday" so for a change instead of making resolutions I couldn't stick too - I made none. I only promised myself to TRY to be healthy when I can.

I am so happy to have taken this approach. I have lost 1.8 lbs since Jan 1 and do not feel like a failure for breaking resolutions. I am not sticking to anything perfectly but each day I try to be healthy and I will see where it takes me.

    Do your best when the day allows it. And remember that sometimes the best thing to do is nothing! Rest and Relax :) :) :)

    Good for you! Do what you can with what you have and just take care of yourself. Great job on the 1.8lbs, too! I hope you are taking care of that IT band and not pushing too much. emoticon
