I have been successful in drinking 8 cups of water for 1 week and exercising for at least 10 minutes for 1 week. Now I am going to exercise for at least 15 minutes every day for a week at the same time as drinking 8 cups of water every day.

Whether you call them goals or resolutions.

I agree with Doug. For me personally, resolutions result in failure and are self-defeating. I prefer goals. My goal for the week is to drink adequate water every day!

I resolve to keep my resolutions. For one week.

I think this is very interesting. I also think that if we look at our resolutions week by week. Instead of the whole year. We could succeed.

This is what I posted on Facebook this afternoon......

I think the problem with people and their New Year's Resolutions. They pick resolutions that are impossible to keep.
Then when they fail. They're like. Oh well! I failed. Can't even try to do better. Until next year.
My favorite Spark People saying,
If you had one flat tire. Do you let the air out of the of the other three tires? Making your car undriveable?
No! You fix the tire and then go on with your life.

Same with resolutions. If you mess up and believe me, you will. Resolve to do better and move on.

Why make them? Because we don't have to be a statistic, we can succeed! It's not the making of the resolution that causes people to fail, it's the lack of making it attainable, creating a plan, or having the *resolve* to start over when we get off track.

Maybe it's not for everyone, but so far I have enjoyed my mini-resolution this week, and look forward to creating a new one next week...

If resolutions result in failure for the vast majority, why bother making them?

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."

That is such an interesting fact and an interesting goal to have! A goal that I have for this week is to go without fast food at all. I have a really hard time with planning meals in advance enough while I'm out on the field at work and I really don't want to rely on fast food anymore! I might add listening to new music though because that is such a cool idea!!!

I was reading statistics on New Year's Resolutions and did you know that 27.4% of people do not make it through the first week! Really! Over a quarter of the people who make resolutions admit to quitting within the week... that's quite a few... and kinda sad. So then I started thinking, what if I had some resolutions that were only meant for ONE week? That's not a ton of pressure, right? If I knew I had to only do something for seven days, I could probably handle it! So besides my bigger resolutions, each week I have decided to make a minor (maybe goofier resolution) to go along with it!!

So Week One: *drum roll please* I RESOLVE EACH DAY TO LISTEN TO A NEWLY RELEASED SONG SUGGESTED BY AMAZON (all the way through... no matter how bad... no matter what genre... if you knew me, you would understand the challenge, lol)

So I ask you, what silly, strange, or heck, maybe somewhat serious, resolve could you make for just one week?
