I Don't Roll With Resolutions

Resolutions just aren't my thing.  I'm weak in willpower and shatter resolutions almost the same day I make them.  Sure, there's a lot of things I'd like to change and goals I'd like to meet.  But calling them "a resolution" doesn't make me more inclined to do anything about it. 

My husband and I are enrolling in a weight loss/martial arts combo class starting next week.  We'll be attending four days a week for a few months in the hopes of getting in better shape.  Since camping season has ended I've gained ten pounds.  I saw pictures of myself recently and about cried.  I don't hold myself to model standards but want to be able to be happy with the way I feel.   Honestly, if my husband wasn't attending the new workout classes with me I'd think of every excuse in the book not to go.  But hey, I can't have him looking all buff while I'm still lollygagging around with two stacked muffin tops riding on my abdomen. 

I'd like to wish all my readers a Happy New Year!  2012 treated me pretty well, thank the good Lord above, and I'm excited to see what 2013 will bring.  Have you made any New Year's resolutions?

Happy New Year! Sounds like you have a great plan for the new year ahead! I'm just determined to get back to more intentional living and family time. I always fail when it comes to diets. LOL! Take care!

I take Krav Maga 3x a week and I haven't seen as much of a signifigant weight loss as I'd have liked to, but it's great training and a good skill to have. You guys are gonna love it.

No Resolutions but at church the other week the pastor for the weekend talked about writing down what we want to do be better at, things that God always has in place for us and us seeing them.

Writing down your goals has been proven to be a very powerful tool to success. So write it down, girl, and post it as a reminder. Write down all the reasons you want to be in shape, and then put it on the fridge or somewhere you'll see it.

I completely agree with you Terra, I never do resolutions myself because I feel just the word itself dooms people from the start!

I'd much prefer writing a to-do list or goals for myself like you saw on my site than saying I'm going to do something only for it to fizzle out.

It ultimately comes down to you and what you're willing to do! No need for things like 'resolutions' to make it sound fancier then it is.

I wish you and hubby luck at your exercising class! It sounds like a lot of fun to be honest :)
