The New Years’ Resolution A time honored tradition that leaves 80% of Americans quitting and running for the cookies, hot cocoa, and wine by February. That’s right… I said 80 percent! But you know what… I bet that number doesn’t shock you. I bet you’ve made a resolution before and according to statistics… you haven’t stuck to it.
Which has left you feeling...
Guilty– because, yet again, you’ve proven you can’t be trusted alone with the cookies, wine, or candy.
Ashamed – because you have to accept failure… again.
Lonely – because you SHOULD be able to just DO this… right? It’s just a matter of will-power… right?
Screaming at the scale - because it's just cathartic.
And it means those health changes (losing weight, sleeping better, stressing less) you so want to – and so NEED to make – all get left in the dust… waiting until next year when you’ll try again… *sigh*
How do I know this?
Girl… Me and the NYR have been around the block MORE than a few times.
So here’s a suggestion…
Let’s give a big ol’ MIDDLE FINGER to the New Years Resolution. Just F*** it right to hell. (Warning: I have a dirty pirate mouth sometimes…) (What should you do instead? Glad you asked!)
