New Years Resolution

Alright. Lets get this straight. I am so not a fan of "New Years Resolutions." Every year for as long as I can remember, I have promised myself - This will be my year!- And every year I fail. I hate it. This New Years it was an amazing feeling to know I just needed to keep doing what I have been doing. You know, the old fashioned thing... eat less and work out.

I had a little bit of a cold yesterday, but still went to the gym. It seemed like the natural and right thing to do after gaining 8 pounds on a holiday cruise. Which is actually a huge step for me, because the old me would have seen the weight gain as a failure, and given up for a week or two, falling even more behind.

I went to the gym again this morning and got an hour of cardio in on the elliptical (40 min) and the bike (20min). I wanted to quit earlier, but I kept thinking about that stupid tee shirt- work for what you want, blah, blah, blah (see previous post) and I kept going. I was glad afterward.

So my friends, my New Years Resolution is not to have one, just keep doing what I've been doing. (the good stuff not the mistakes) :) Have a great weekend!


  1. Yes! I like that - keep doing the good stuff and you will succeed.

    I'm proud of you for going to the gym and getting right back at losing that 8 pounds. You can do it!

  2. I'm with you on the "no resolution" this year. Just a lot of "keep on keepin' on" on my plate for 2010.

    Keep up the great work!

  3. good idea.
    Have a great night.
