My New Year’s Resolution

Honest Eds

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.
