It’s New Years Eve. Tomorrow is the start of a brand new year. At midnight, we put 2013 behind us. For better or worse, this year is about to transition into the future.
Have you made New Years Resolutions yet? I do every year. I don’t write them down though. I just kind of say the same thing every year.
I want to lose weight and keep it off. I want my entire family to have a healthy year, and a prosperous year. I want to put money away and spend less. Yeah, yeah, yeah. We say it, but one week later, we forget what resolutions we made.
Well this year is going to be different. I am going to write them down right now, put them out there, and follow up on each of them every day, and do the work it will take to make my resolutions a reality. Kind of like the promises we make in Aaron’s program. We write down, we track our success, and move on to the next set of promises toward our success.
1) Lose weight and keep it off. I will get the one hundred pounds I gained off this year!
2) Save money, and stop spending on stupid unnecessary things I can’t even remember what and why I bought it for.
3) Exercise every single day. At least twenty minutes, and work up to at least one hour.
4) Set boundaries and keep them.
5) Publish and sell my book, “Get Me Out of This Fat Suit/ Confessions of a True Fatty.
6) Start and finish new book.
7) Start speaking tour.
8) Reconnect and make time for people I love and care about.
9) Find ways to solve the problems in my life in a positive and constructive way
10) Help my husband build his business, and help him through the transition of retirement coming up the following year.
People make all kinds of resolutions, many similar to mine, but some are very interesting and unique. I read one resolution by someone who stated he wanted to wear more black hats and make black his signature color.
Some people make the resolution to not make resolutions. They tell me that they tend to break or forget their resolutions with a few days of the New Year. Like me, you can’t just say them. You have to write them down, be specific, and then actively work them every day if you want to keep and succeed your resolutions.
I am going to work at each and every one of these resolutions. I will keep you posted as to how I am doing. I hope you do the same. I would love to hear what your resolutions are and how you are doing in keeping them. Happy New Years!
Until we meet again, this is Linda Misleh Wagner, Future Former Fatty.
