Year round resolutions

I don't believe in new year resolutions. I think people who make them typically set themselves up for failure (not on purpose of course). I agree that we can use the new year to start fresh. I like the idea of starting out with a fresh positive attitude or out look. I haven't made any new year resolutions. I have tacked on a few small baby step goals to ones I have been trying to do for the past year. Number one: get into a healthy habit routine again. Around the time I met Shane I was really doing great working out and eating healthy, at least on the week days. But it all worked well for me. I didn't even have a gym membership. I am all for loving the body we have currently. However, I just know I am happiest when I am a little more fit than I currently am. My healthy eating and work out schedule is a little too sporadic right now. Although I happen to have a roommate that is as interested in eating well and working out as I am. I know what happens when I pair up with people. And it typically isn't the best. I like the company but I get too immeshed with the fact that they need to be doing runs or eating right with me. I need to get back to doing all this completely for myself. What I am most proud of is that I am not scouring the web for "thinspiration" or trying to obtain something unachievable. I have my own little "healthsperation" right here... and its all me!

Finishing my first 5K

I'm also never going to cut my hair again. Must. Grow. Long!!!

How about you all out there? Continuing any goals? How do you plan on making this year more productive than the last?


  1. I actually don't like resolutions either. I just think: you have a goal, do it now. Just do it. Don't resolve. Just do it.

    I think we should run a 5K together.

  2. We should totally do a 5k together. I get emails on upcoming runs from Fleet Feet. I'll forward you the good 5ks
