"new year, new you" ehhh...

happy new year!  with a new year comes all those "resolutions".  i personally am not a big fan of resolutions.  i don't think they're anything anyone gives a hoot a bout come a month or 2 into the "new" year.  i am especially not a big fan of the "this year i'm going to work out and lose weight!" resolution.  let's be serious, if you haven't lived a healthy lifestyle in the past, just because a year was added onto the count doesn't mean you're going to be anymore serious about it now.  i am all for the lifestyle change, but i don't think that that has to start just because it's the new year.  if that's really what you need to keep you motivated, okay, but from my personal experience, meaning myself and witnessing what happens in the gym, it usually isn't something that lasts.  it gets cold and snowy and people lose motivation and become busy and blah blah blah blah. i mean i can't judge, like i said, i've been that person, but i've also learned from it so take it from me, if you want a new you, you're good to start anytime.

that advice doesn't go very far right now considering it is the new year, but don't look at it as a resolution. make getting healthy a lifestyle change, and don't just make it about losing weight; feel better about yourself and work on living a longer life!

anyways...you won't find me doing anything different.  i guess i'm biased because i have always been athletic but as you know the eating thing has always been a problem, so the whole dieting thing is hard to stay away from.  if anything, i want to keep up with my workouts, drop some sweets from my diet, and just try and be happier...and maybe pay off my credit cards. OH and blog more :)
