This year, I decided I wasn’t going to make a New Year’s Resolution. After all, I never stick to them. As I was going back through blog posts, I kept noticing a theme. I was continually recommitting to my goals. Recommitting to my weight loss, getting back on the training wagon, etc.
Clearly, something wasn’t working.
After a bit of thought, I realize that a lot of my self-induced problems are because I’m not being honest with myself.
Weight gain – I’m not being honest with myself about what I’m eating, and I’m letting myself go overboard too much.
Training – I’m not being honest about the effort I’m putting in and the benefits it does provide.
Financial situation – I’m not being honest about what I’m spending when I’m spending it.
I need to be honest with myself and make decisions wisely. No more “Oh, this expense/food won’t matter that much.” No, I need to pay attention. If I want to buy that item, if I want to eat that snack, I need to make sure that there’s room in the budget for it, be it caloric or financial.
2015 has the potential to be a great year. I just need to stick to it and stop lying to myself.
