Everyone gets all enthusiastic and excited toward the end of December and by the 31st they have a list of all of the things they plan to accomplish in the New Year.
One of my military sons, who is stationed in Japan, absolutely hates the first three weeks of January because it complicates his workout. There are so many people in the gym, many who havenâ€™t worked out in years, that it is a clog to the system.
He is always jubilant by the end of January when it starts to clear out and things get back to normal.
Thatâ€™s just it. Most people just write that long list of resolutions and eventually forget about it. Life happens, something comes up and all of a sudden you havenâ€™t been to the gym in months. Or you go three weeks eating carefully and then find yourself in a Godiva shop rapidly swallowing chocolate truffles.
Instead of getting right back on track most people quit.
This year I did have a couple of goals and so far I have been pretty consistent with them. I have gotten off track for a day or two here and there, but so far I have gotten back on the wagon without too much fuss.
Of course itâ€™s fairly early. Early February may be way too early to claim my dubious success at being consistent with my resolution.
Iâ€™m curious. If you took the time to make a New Yearâ€™s resolution or two are you still on track? How are you doing with that?
