The Problem With New Year’s Resolutions…

They’re called New Year’s resolutions. That’s the problem. The name. “New Year” implies January, not the rest of the year. It implies Sunday and Monday, but not the rest of the week. Nobody talks about the “new year” between February first and December 26th. So this year, you’re going to join me in

LIFESTYLE CHANGES!

Think about your 2014. What did you do well? What would you have changed? And most importantly, HOW would you have changed those things?

For me, 2014 was the year I ran my first half marathon. The year I tried the Whole Life Challenge. The year I put those accomplishments on hold to find (and start!) a much needed new job. I found out what I am capable of, and that I drastically re-prioritize when necessary.

What does this mean for my 2015? It means that I know I can push myself. I’m taking the Whole Life Challenge past the 8 week cycle, truly making it a part of my whole life. I will be scoring my health and fitness every day this year! I am also getting back into running and reintroducing my long (5+ mile) “Sunday Runday.”

My "how"

My “how”

These are all fine dreams, and I know if I say they are my “New Year’s resolutions,” I’ll be over it in a month. Except I will practice these lifestyle changes daily with the addition of my new day planner! I am making myself accountable by scheduling and logging constantly. To make it more fun, I ordered the stunning¬†Whitney English Day Designer, a fun set of pens, and colorful stickers to help document my journey.

TL;DR: Just watch these TED Talks.

Happy New Year!
