I’ve always been one to make new year’s resolutions and then break them very soon afterwards (we’re talking within a matter of DAYS…). For me, it’s a combination of a few things that lead me to break new year’s resolutions: a lack of motivation and drive, laziness, and convenience.. I guess those are all related to eachother in a way. Here are a few examples of typical resolutions and reasons/excuses why they are broken so quickly
- Pay more attention to what I’m eating (i.e. eat better) – “But I’m so hungry and this bag of Flaming Hot Cheetohs is sitting right here..”
- Be more diligent about training (i.e. exercise regularly) – “But I’m so tired from work today… and staying up late reading (or playing games)…”
- Put a little more effort in what I wear (i.e. dress better) – “But I’m running late. T-shirt and jeans are so easy”
See what I mean? This year, I’ve only made one new year’s resolution:
Run a sub-4-hour marathon.
That shouldn’t be too hard, right?
Anyone else make any resolutions they plan on trying their best to keep?
