Oh Lord. I realize that title is probably not the best. New Years resolutions for the most part, well suck. I mean really. They sound so great, you know, in theory. But in practice, why can’t we make them work?
For one, I think the goals are always too lofty. Stop drinking or cursing. Ha! Or lose 50 pounds. Go to the gym 5 days a week? Usualyl people who make these type of resolutions are total couch potatoes, so switching from that to a gym rat, probably not gonna happen. I mean, the good thing is, you’re in great company? Have you seen the gym lately?! Good God, it’s crazy right now!!
Ok, so here’s my idea for a new years resolution for this year.
Ummm, can I get a drum roll??
brrrrrr rrrr rrrr
(thank you! geez!)
Make monthly resolutions! Ta da!!
So here’s what I’m thinking, I’m going to make a resolution, for the month on the first of each month. This month’s resolution? Ugh, I hate it already, but…
I’m not going to eat out.
You probably can see my excited face from here. :-/
Here’s why. Well for one, the hubs and I eat out waaayyyy too much. It costs a fortune. And I’m really bad when I eat out, I think, oh this is a treat, or a special occasion, you know like a Wednesday. Hump day counts as a special occasion doesn’t it? No? Hmmm. Anyways, I use the excuse of being in a restaurant, to not eat so great. So I figure, not eating out this month will help pad my wallet, and take off some padding from, well, my rear end
Now I would LOVE to hear? Do you make New Year’s resolutions? And do you ever keep them?
